Allegro 5.2 merges the unstable with the stable branch.  It breaks API
and requires applications to define “ALLEGRO_UNSTABLE” to use unstable

Allegro 5.0.11 is the last of the stable releases and the last to use
the pkg-config identifier “allegro-5.0”, which some applications look

I’m not sure if this is enough to justify keeping 5.0 or if we should
patch the configure scripts of applications that look for “allegro-5.0”.
