Please do. A soname is a totally artificial construct, it doesn't matter
if DBUS 1.0 ships with libdbus.so.11
The key point is to fail cleanly - if apps are being accidentally linked
against an incompatible version of DBUS then we want them to break in a
predictable and easy to debug manner, not trashing their stack due to a
struct size change and crashing yards away from the original problem.
While people are running around with old DBUS installations it makes the
most sense to do.
