Right now the external library is called "gio-standalone", with the
pkg-config file being "gio-standalone.pc". I could keep the module name,
but rename the pkg-config file to "gio.pc". Then when we move it to glib
apps would just continue to run and build.

I agree with the API/ABI break soname bumping idea in general, and it
could save us from a lot of weird behaviour. However, right now its
changing a bit too often for that to be sane. Once it settles down a bit
it seems like a good plan though.
