It would have, and I should have done so.  That's my fault.

The API/ABI changed for libnm-glib as a result of the port to PolicyKit
1.0, and the soname was also bumped.  Since the name never should have
been _ in the first place, at the same time as the soname bump and
API/ABI changes, the library name and thus the pkgconfig file name were
also changed.  This also ensures that we see the error more clearly at
build time instead of segfaults due to missing symbols at runtime.

In addition to that, I'll be bumping the soname of the libnm-glib-vpn
library for the Debian folks, but most programs don't link to
libnm-glib-vpn.
