compat-libs are for *binary* stuff that *have to* look for  compat libs.

why provide compat-libs with pkg-config files? if you can rebuild the
code, then there is no need for  old .so files.
systemd provide compat .so files just because so you won't have to
rebuild the affected code.

why providing .so files when you can rebuild the code ?

so, compat-libs is only for binary only apps, the apps that came with
source code is all that fine with  old pkg-config files.

compat-libs is in conflict with pkg-config files.
