The troubles do not result from the name mangling algorithm.  If anything,
the incompatible name mangling protects users, by making clear that
the code is incompatible.

The layout of C++ objects changed in a major way between 2.95 and 3.x.
If the name mangling had not changed, people would link code that would
then crash.
