I can see how this is useful, but shouldn't libdwfl/debuginfod-client.c 
then also use this method/new constants?

Don't we need both versioned and versionless names (at least dwfl tries
the versioned one first, then falls back to the unversioned one).

It would be nice to see documentation in

Finally, I am actually using the Makefile VERSION variable in a
downstream (DTS) to make sure the so name of all libraries is different
from the system one. This is just a minor issue though, and I should
probably upstream a tweak to do this upstream so others can also more
easily use this.
