less divergence in 4.2 vs 4.4 or 4.x packaging.
So it is a cleanup but one which does not at all harm 4.2  but helps in the
long term.
If it was not the case you'd have to make the sonames explicit in the other
two libs too.
I am almost sure this hardcoding was not intentional so by fixing it I am
not doing any harm.

If it had been the same way in the other two libs I would have asked here.

Indeed I want to make our lives easier. Sometimes I may overreact in
eliminating copy-pastage and hardcoded magic but this time I am not ;)

So by using a stretched analogy: used the wildcard here just as we do for
so that we don't have to explictely add/remove  various filenames from one
package version
to the other but rely on upstream to DTRT which they usually do :)
