[opensuse-packaging] Directory versioning policy for library packages

I have stumbled over a small problem regarding versioned directories.

Currently, it is expected a versioned library uses a pattern like /usr/lib/
libfoo-1_2_3/ Although this allows multiple packages, it is contrary to
what some upstreams use for versioning, e.g. /usr/lib/libfoo/1.2.3/

From an RPM perspective, both are ok, as directories can be owned by multiple
packages. rpmlint throws an "W: shlib-policy-nonversioned-dir" warning, which
is IMHO wrong.

Kind regards,
