That just seems silly. The package builder can make the binary 
name whatever they choose. And from the Linux side it makes even 
less sense because it is extremely common. gcc, is it GCC 4.7, 
3.2, 8.5, 967, clang? No, it is a symbolic link to whatever you 

This is what hive have DDebber[1] doing, though because of your 
previous post I see that I got the version naming of libphobos2 
wrong. I was going to develop it further to package Tango and 
allow v1 and 2 to install together, but such effort appears less 
and less important.
