Your package contains a single shared library but is not named after its
SONAME.

libtinyxml != libtinyxml0

The number is there to ensure that future, incompatible versions of the library
can also be installed. This is important to be able to run 'older'
applications that use the old API for example. You're not always able / willing
to port everything to the new version of a SH Lib.
