Thanks a bunch; I've been working on that here today.  I'll take a look at

worth looking at, I'll stick it into bugzilla.

I've submitted a patch to libtool which should make it into version 1.5 
that permits explicit library version number control to solve this issue, 
and make it possible to use libtool with other existing libraries.
