Yes, symbol versioning requires the same level of discipline as the more
constrained library version number bumping. If we have decided that our
developers are too incompetent to properly bump library versions for ABI
changes then they are also too incompetent to handle symbol versioning.
Furthermore, even with the massive library bumps, we have still stuck our
collective heads in the sand and ignored all the port library version
numbers. In theory they should all be bumped for 5 -> 6 as well.
