If ABI change is small and programs using it can compile with
-dev file for libcangjie and  libcangjie2, then it should be the same
-dev name (even dropped API, your program may compile).  If they are
completely different, maybe different name with proper dependency
specified to avoid serious bug.  That is my thought.

I am no expert and quite a novice on this isse.
