This whole soname crap really doesn't make any sense. I don't see why we should
be skipping all the way from 0 to 9 when this is the *first*
backward-incompatible change. It can be changed back, though. If we do that, I
guarantee we're going to get questions from people like the Debian packagers
wanting to know why we changed our soname from libpurple.so.0 to libpurple.so.9.
