So, in that case, it is not ready, and must be removed from the tree. To
use your own words, 'I am not happy with playing alphatester for such a
combination in a _production_ environment'; please decide whether it is
ready for shipping, in which case it should be a shared library with
soversion 0.0.0, or it is not ready for shipping, in which case you
retract it to your own tree.
