To what Bob and Wan-Teh already wrote, I would add that AFAIK, there are
no open bug reports, at present, about failures of backward binary
compatibility for programs that use the NSS public API/ABI.

If someone finds something they believe is a backward binary compatibility
failure, they should report it to us immediately, preferably through
bugzilla.mozilla.org.  That's much better for all concerned than taking
another approach of introducing even more incompatibilities (such as
changing the public sonames) to try to work around a perceived problem.
