But won't this work exactly as we all want if we change the VERSION in
lib/ to be 5.0.1?

From what I understand you use that first digit for SONAME (5) and that'll be
fine for you, and systems that can do this transition in a backwards
compatible way will then use libtool and use 4 as the major number.

Or did I miss some vital details?
