I disagree. I have various ideas about breaking the ABI of libvlccore in
version 0.9.1, and I am sure someone else will also break it (purposedly or
not). But that does not mean we will break with every single release.

In any case, we intend to keep libvlc ABI-compatible as much as possible.
Hence I very much disagree with having a libvlc-0.9.*.so that would force
relinking all applications.
