Shared library versioning policy

I recently asked the boost-devel list to review my port of the boost
library, and on the whole everything seems to be okay.
There is one issue, though: Starting with Boost 1.31.0, I forced shared
library version numbers: so.1 for Boost 1.31.0, so.2 for the current
I now learnt that starting with version 1.32.0, Boost has its own shared
library version policy: so.1.32.0
This raises the following questions:
- Is this naming scheme compatible to ?
- Shall I change the port to use Boost's versioning scheme?
o This would have the advantage to provide a port that is more
compatible to the official boost distribution.
o The drawback is that the port with so.2 libraries is already in our
CVS repository, which would mean that the shared library version
numbers would decrease.
Thanks for your advise,
