OpenSSL has broken ABI in the past without a .soname bump. Very
annoying. That does not make it your business to hard-code a version
number into the application IMO.
Let's say the OpenSSL guys get really clued up all of a sudden, and/or
LibreSSL takes off. Assume that the ABI via the .soname becomes really
solid, but the version number starts to increment rapidly. Not
impossible. I shouldn't have to re-compile FreeRADIUS to take advantage
I don't think applications should be enforcing this, full stop. I don't
expect you'll agree with me, but never mind.
