Right. But how are the changes reflected in the DSO names ? Wasn't that
the origin of this whole thread ? There needs to be a way for packagers
to express 'minor release with no ABI changes', but if the full range
of three position numers ('1.33.1') is already taken by boost.org itself,
even without *any* semantics attached, that's hard to do without confusing
