Nope, you only need to rename the .pc file if the ABI changes
incompatibly. If people want 2.2 they ask for "libbonobo-2.0 >= 2.2"

It's a bit confusing, we maybe should have done "libbonobo-2" without
the ".0", but I wouldn't change it now, would just cause more

The .pc filename version is basically just for parallel install, so if
you haven't renamed the other files there's no point renaming the .pc
