Well, you brought it up, not me :-)

I will not make difficulties for these changes, as they address code
that is already somewhat duplicated and quite tricky. But at some point
we will need to address the issue.

I think that even if nobody starts to implement anything right away, we
should discuss the question and decide the direction we want to go. At
the very least, it would alleviate bikeshedding for future patches and
make it safer for anybody to start working on something without fear of
being eventually rejected.

So I would like to put the following motion to discussion:

  Starting roughly three months from now, linking (including dynamically
  at run time) with different versions of the libraries will not be
  supported. Only linking with the exact same versions (source code and
  build options) will be supported. This applies even if nothing is
  actually implemented to enforce it (but it would be better to have

It is far from a complete solution, but at least it gives a direction.
