In how far does that affect the filename?  We're adding new APIs
to Cygwin all the time, but the DLL is still called cygwin1.dll.
And that's how it works for any other DLL as well as long as it
doesn't break backward compatibility, API-wise.

It's your and Yaakov's call eventually, so I retract all my idle
musings in terms of the file or directory names.  Just let Jan know
how you want to have it.
