           Summary: modules in /usr/lib/cairo avoids parallel installation
                    of different versions
           Product: cairo
           Version: 1.9.12
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: cworth at cworth.org
        ReportedBy: dominique-freedesktop.org at leuenberger.net

I suggest to version /usr/lib/cairo subfolder.

Due to the nature of shared libraries it might be that in the future two (or
more) versions of cairo need to be installed in parallel. For this reason there
are the soNUM bumps whenever an ABI break happens.

But having the modules in an unversioned directory avoids this from working
properly, as different versions of cairo would potentially try to load the same
