Is it?

$ cat /etc/debian_version
$ ls -l /usr/lib/libz.so*
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root      15 Aug  8  2012 libz.so.1 -> 
-rw-r--r--  1 root root   79980 Dec 28  2009 libz.so.

libz.so.1 is the soname, and a symlink. I still don't see how this is 
different from what we are doing, or how it would make sense to do this 
the other way round.
