It is generally unwise to attempt to keep SONAME versions and project
versions in sync. This leads to confusion and inappropriate
compatibility problems. Best practice is to keep them entirely

The exception is projects which make no attempt to provide any kind of
stable ABI, for whatever reason (usually: code changing too fast,
developers can't be bothered). Those have exactly one SONAME per
version of the code, and client applications must be rebuilt with
every code change to the library.
