Regardless of what Fedora wants to support in its own environments, it's
important that what they do doesn't prevent other distros from
supporting multiple flavours if they so wish.  That means that there
must be at least common agreement on the fundamental naming of the
dynamic loader (assuming that the libraries themselves can be found via
some config magic).
