Hmm... that’s no “boast” ... just a well-known aspect of the system.
The version-name is part of the file-name and a cache directory is built (in various ways) to allow either a short or a very-specific library name to be requested. Multiple versions of everything are usually available all the time, so that old software can use old libraries or newer ones as you direct. The idea of multiple platforms and of targets different from the one you’re on are also considered. It really is a very different approach. Which is neither here nor there with regard to your thread.
