Problem with that one is that all builds are incremental,
after the first one. 2.1 is an increment of 2.0, etc.

This is a "temporary" add-on that will be folded into
the main libraries (which you also need of course, to run
the company's product). Eight out of ten customers load
just the regular library. The remaining two load the regular
library, plus the shim (which gives them the same functionality
as the others got (on their OS flavors) from just the main
library).

Or something like that.
