[Pkg-crosswire-devel] Is it time for libsword8 ?

Should we package 1.6 series SWORD libs as libsword8?

We already know of one (minor) backward-incompatible API change from
1.5.11, and so it is likely there are others.

Since we now have sword-1.5.11 well and truly in Debian as libsword7
(yay!)... we probably need to bump our package SONAME to 8, and so our
binary package name to libsword8, for 1.6 series libraries.

Comments, suggestions and counter-arguments welcome :)
