When are you going to break the ABI?  After 7.0 is tagged
and released?  If you break the ABI before, you don't need
or want to have the compat versions; the libraries have already
been bumped in prep for release.  I don't think we want to
use symbol versioning as a crutch for -current users; the
version definitions are meant for public releases only.
