Yes, but releases of new library interfaces don't really happen often
(1.8->2.0 and now 2.0 -> 2.2) so this is not a big problem.
One thing this versioning thing is related to is development speed. I'd
like to get back to a faster release cycle (seems to be a common problem
nowadays). As long as it's difficult for users to install different
versions of various ecasound components, it's not practical to release new
library versions every other month.
