I'm not sure.  The libtool manual goes to great lengths to emphasize
the difference between its system for describing an `interface', and
the `version' number that describes a software release.  So
`interface-version' doesn't feel good to me.  It might be best to live
with the two different meanings of `interface' (i.e. use `#:interface'
per your original suggestion) and just make sure that the
corresponding documentation is crystal clear.
