After looking into the ldbl128 transition from #430281 I've found that
the libomniorb4 (libomniorb4-1 in the trunk) and libcos4 (libcos4-1 in
the trunk) binary packages are affected by this.  But since they have
to go through a transition anyway I don't think there is a need to
change the name again.  I've added an entry in the changelog
explaining just this, but correct me if I'm wrong.

As for the API compatibility as mentioned by Philip Kern in #430422,
the release notes of 4.1.0 mention something incompatible.  But it
seems to me that that is for people who used a beta release of 4.1 and
moved to 4.1 final, i.e. it was a change in an added API.  However I
am not sure.

Surely it must be possible to write a script that compares all the
header files of the two releases and spits out any API changes.  And
surely someone else must have written that already, I'll have to find
it (hints welcome).
