I did a little more digging this morning. Darktable doesn't directly use
any of the symbols that moved from libcolord.so.1 to
libcolordprivate.so.1, so the version number bump for the relevant
symbols is ineffectual.  

BTW: Bernhard Link points out on irc that the shipped libcolord1.shlibs
file is wrong since it says that any version of the libcolord1 package
provides libcolordprivate.so.1.
