3. Ask upstream to add an option to build a shared lib. You can also make it
   easier for them by sending a patch.

While there's no official ABI versioning, use something like
libscintilla-VERSION.so.0 for SONAME to ensure ABI version changes
with scintilla version (if necessary). You probably know how to track
ABI changes.
