This is confusing. As I read the quotes below, recompilation is
necessary, and the announcement has items which suggest at least some of
the ABI has changed.

Could the promise also specify that future ABI changes will result in
ELF version changes to avoid any more of the mess with the 1.2 and 1.3
libraries wrongly appearing as compatible to the dynamic linker? It
should just be a question of managing changes and doing the right thing
with libtool.
