Possibly, the last line could equally be:

That would have the same effect on Darwin, if applied consistently.

The encoded current_version is for informational purposes only, nothing uses it, compatibility_version is used by dyld (darwin's dynamic linker) when loading libraries. It checks that the library version it loaded has a compatibility_version greater than or equal to the one it saw when it was created by the static linker.

On second thoughts, perhaps I do get it. Or maybe it is to late at night, and it will make sense in the morning.
