Upcoming Shibboleth-related package transition

So that I don't screw anybody up here, I'm working on makefile and packaging
issues right now that may result in some version bumping but in some cases
no code changes. log4shib is the main example at the immediate moment.

I assume it's not a problem if the package version increases without a
change to the library version/soname provided by the package?

I don't like the apparently common practice of matching library versions to
package versions, but if there's a problem not incrementing them I suppose I
can live with it...
