Fortunately, the util-linux version is newer, so you don't have any
headaches with versions moving backwards. However, the point I was
really trying to make is that as a consumer of libblkid, I only really
care about the package version. I also care when the .so version
bumps, but there will certainly be a package version bump coinciding.
I don't care about the internal version of the library.
