Some of my mono-based packages contain helper libraries or bindings.
They get a shlib-policy-name-error, which is a fatal error. The error
states: Your package contains a single shared library but is not named
after its SONAME.

It would be ridiculous to rename my package libMonoFuseHelper0, for
instance as this is just a helper .so and not in any way the main
contents of this package. It would be equally ridiculous to separate
the helper library to a sub-package as no other package would ever need
it by itself.

Does the rpmlint test need to be modified to recognize the mono
assemblies in the package?

Where can I read the text of the shlib-policy?

Would patching the package to put it's helper library in a private
directory cause the test to pass? This would probably cause me some
trouble as they would require .config files to instruct the runtime
where to find the .so.
