Why does ldconfig insist on a trailing number?

ldconfig is documented as only looking at files that have some version
number after the .so suffix, say, .so.4. This looks rather ugly when the
library version is part of the name, as in BerkeleyDB ports.

Is there a functional requirement for the trailing version number?  If
so, what is it?

Thanks in advance.
