and it's more global than this: this happens to be the case with other 
gnomeish libs as well: glib, gtk+2....

it has been addressed earlier with upstream (by patrys), to make soname 
versions, but upstream declined that plan for gtk+2/gtk+3

sorry no links to mailinglist, or samples or other libs, but i'm sure 
the topic itself is not new.

could this be addressed by rpm side?
%requires_eq is not the solution i'm seeking, as that would cause 
pointless rebuilds and upgrades if nothing has changed between versions.
