That's the one that should be increased for every release. I was thinking of
the minor number to indicate that this release contains new exports.
After a bit of experimentation, I've discovered that the mapping between
the -version-info c:r:a numbers and the file name (on Linux, anyway)
isn't direct; the SONAME version is actually calculated by c-a. That
makes the libtool documentation make more sense; they're not actually
advocating bumping the SONAME when interfaces are added--since the "a"
value is also increased along with "c", c-a stays the same in this case.
Following the libtool instructions gives a -version-info of 5:0:1.
That results in a library name of libcurl.so.4.1.0 which makes sense
for this release.
