Angry Rant about library linkage

<rant type=mild>

Why do they have to do this? it seems ridiculous to link against an explicit library name! It would be much easier if they linked against common shared object names and saved us all a lot of trouble!


Of course, there is the problem of API divergence and unexpected behavior, but aren't there ways to check that at compile-time or run-time?
