You don't have to change soname, but all you need it use symbols
versioning with package (or build) specific version for private-API.
This method uses libvirt.so where is large number of private but
so something like:
where $(VERSION) is always different, then you can be sure that people
won't be able to link against the symbols and mix libsystemd with
systemd binaries from different versions.
