GTK has the funny expr thing you have there, but you'd have to ask
Owen what it's about exactly.

Here's what gconf has to say:

dnl increment if the interface has additions, changes, removals.

dnl increment any time the source changes; set to 
dnl  0 if you increment CURRENT

dnl increment if any interfaces have been added; set to 0
dnl  if any interfaces have been removed. removal has 
dnl  precedence over adding, so set to 0 if both happened.

The comments are just my summary of the docs in "info libtool" 

So for the GTK versioning scheme I guess you'd expect _CURRENT to
increment between major releases, and REVISION to increment for all
bugfix releases, and AGE to never change.

Don't third-party views/components use it?
