lemme rephrase ... you keep the ABI SONAME lib around until all packages are 
done with it; this does not affect any other package (including upgrades to 
the same package) as the ABI filename is unique in the filesystem

it is not used at linktime because it does not provide a linkable file ... it 
merely provides the library used at runtime

so you can upgrade on the fly as the old ABI lib does not conflict with 
anything
