Well the thing is 1.0 applets NEED to load the 1.1 libs to be able to talk to
the 1.1 panel.  And 1.0 applets using the 1.1 libs will have no problems with
the 1.0 panel.  So the above wouldn't work, all that the 1.1 applet lib is
an "upgrade".  If you mix 1.0 and 1.1, just make sure everything uses the 1.1

The problem was that we were not sure how to do all this and were changing
the soname around all the time, SO, we had a .so.1.0.0 around which would
confuse things in fact (unless you recompiled everything).  But no one was
supposed to use HEAD for real work so ... :)
