Yes, I have the same impression of how things should work.  I thought
of the 'soname' as referring to the entire c:r:a portion, but that is
probably incorrect.  I wish there were more precisely defined
terminology in this area; even Drepper's paper on how to write shared
libraries mix and match terminology in different sections.
