I'm particularly interested in case 5:

Case 5:
 - foo linked against subversion/apr-0.9
 - foo has libsvn (and possibly libapr, doesn't really matter) in the
   NEEDED section
 - system upgrades to new subversion/apr-1.x keeping apr-0.9
   _and subversion/apr-0.9_
 - foo continues to work normally

This is what I will do on Debian, and having both svn libs installed
simultaneously is only possible if the soname is changed.

Interesting approach - I happen to think it's unnecessary, but if it
makes people happy....
