A concrete suggestion: belt and suspenders.
Change the production makefiles to link to winbindd_whatever.so.1 (belt)
Create a winbindd_whatever.so.2, and build it with the new interfaces,
using symbol versioning in such a way that linkers that don't
understand get the new and and not the old versions. (suspenders)
Change the Makefile for development version and optionally the
winbindd_whatever.so symlink to point
to winbindd_whatever.so.2 so that new builds get the new library.
Now experiment with new interfaces and versioning, knowing that
old builds won't trip over the new code.
