I think it is a bit unfortunate that we don't have a system to determine
whether boost updates break existing api's. The usual process is that, for
example, suppose we have

Let's assign this soname Then a symlink is created ->

Now if a bugfix comes out that does not change the api, be can have, which also has soname, and then symlink: ->

OK, so that's the background. AFAICT, we (boost) don't have any way to tell
if a new release breaks existing api, and whether to up the version. I
think that is unfortunate. I don't really know what to do about it,
