I think part of the confusion stems from a long tradition of using
name-x.y.z in a way that only increasing x to x + 1 will indicate ABI

Thus, from a packager's point of view (as opposed to project manager's)
version 33.1 should never exist, it should be called 34 instead.
(I have left out the initial '1.' here, as that seems to be a relict
