This, sir, is false. I believe what you mean to say here is "many
distributions use nouveau as default, and therefore have to cope with
nouveau's inability to use versioning". I can assure you that this is
not the same thing as "without any problems".
For example, commits like this:
where the API to the userspace drivers changed, should have been
accompanied by bumping it to libdrm_nouveau.so.2.
