Yes, it will trigger rebuilds and confusion among the developers and packagers, 
and a bunch of package updates for the users. Most of the generated traffic 
would be superfluous if it is only caused by this bug.

Because the SONAME is part of the file name of the runtime shared library, you 
can keep several runtime shared libraries installed in the system at the same 
time. Developers can only compile against a single version, because the linker 
uses at linking time only the libfluidsynth.so symlink, and because there is 
only one set of headers installed.
