It might reduce confusion to choose a random version number for the
initial soname, to make it clear that it is independent of any hurd
version number. You should have seen the discussion on the gmp list
when gmp-4.0 was released. gmp-3.1.1 was installed as libgmp.so.3.1.1,
and gmp-4.0 was installed as libgmp.so.3.2.0, and some users
complained loudly "I installed gmp-4.0 and I only got a version 3.2
library! You must change it to install as libgmp.so.4.something!". And
this after efforts had been made to ensure that version 4.0 was binary
