Aehm, who is perfectly aware of ABI changes?

I invite you to review e.g.

ABI change or not?

No ABI change by definition as the SONAME does not change.

That's assuming that upstream knows what they do...
and NEVER miss out on anything.

Yes, and you only detect if that is true (and thus detect bugs)
if you actually _not_ rebuild $world after Qt 4.8.2.

Do we WANT to run into that? knowing that this results in random crashes? Yes, of course, SONAME should be bumped by upstreams if that happens.

On the other hand: you see SO many upstreams bumping SONAME only if the 'break' existing ABI... ADDITION of it seems to be done without changes.. (thus usually resulting in 'requiring not being enough', as you need >= version it was built against)
