I see the problem. I think you are right, but it *is* unfortunate, because I
would not be surprised to find there are ancient programs out there that rely
on finding the actual POSIX functions. (With hindsight, of course, they should
never have been implemented.) But maybe such ancient programs still use
PCRE1...

I think we probably should bump the SOANAME so that it indicates that a
recompile is necessary.
