Then it becomes unreasonable for a piece of software to be compatible
with multiple version of the same library, and support all of those.

When a used come to use complaining that something is broken, that a

them to understand that the issue is due to a 3rd party library.

MythTV aimed to be an appliance-like application. You install it and
you forget about it.
