By bumping libgailutil major for each gail release, you break binary
compatibility for already compiled applications, which cause headache
for distributors like Mandrake or RH (we have to recompile all
applications against this version of the lib and if we are in post
release state, we have to be sure to keep old version of the lib

This is what we could call the "GAL" syndrome :))
