+# Retain a symbolic link from libcurl.so.3 to libcurl.so.4.4.0 for
+# applications that are still linked against it in S11.
+# According to the current curl maintainer, Daniel Stenberg, "We bumped the
+# soname because we removed support for third party ftp transfers. That's a
+# feature that is very rarely used so very few people or applications
+# actually suffered anything at all when going from 3 to 4".
