I still don't see why it should have been 2:0:0... some interfaces
were added, and some were changed, and none removed, so according
to those doc's steps:

3. code changed => 1:2:0->1:3:0
4. i'faces added&changed => 1:3:0->2:0:0
5. i'faces added => 2:0:0->2:0:1
6. no i'faces removed

so I still don't see how the numbering could have broken something
or how I would fix it in the next release. unless:

...maybe this is what caused the problem?  i.e. some underlying
change in libFLAC.

also, just read Henrique's later email... this is probably
what happened.  for the next release I will make sure that
the numbers are bumped up enough to be right again.  but I
don't have a timeline for the next release... it is mostly
ready but I'm still trying to get time to integrate a bunch
of PPC optimizations.

I'm OK with Matt doing a 1.1.1a just to fix the sonames
