Yes, I absolutely agree that SO_VERSION number should be decoupled from
release version numbers. This should also be done for the other libraries.
If I understand you correctly there will be a libldb release:
libldb-4.11 and then libldb-4.12
Samba 4.11.1 and 4.11.2 will depend on libldb-4.11.
If I understood it correctly than this sounds like a good idea! :-)
