Just not as good as it can be, provided that it already uses Qt.

Build libqgpsmm with Qt4 and you will get<nn>. Build libqgpsmm 
with Qt5 and you will still have the same shared library name and SONAME.

So the question is: why should the library have a different name according to 
which Qt version it uses? because it exposes it's public API (and in this case 
even uses the specific main loop!). So it can't be coinstalable.

Note that this is for libqgpsmm, not libgpsmm not libgps.

No, see above.

I think the rest of the mails boils down to the same thing.
