I think I've just seen this point of yours, and the answer is that, when a
library itself depends on other libraries, its real name is not enough for
compatibility purposes. You also need to know what it has been linked
against in your system. This information should be stored locally and
uploaded to the database as well. So, if a library's real name is
libfoo.so.3.1 , then we could say that its "recursively real name" is
something like libfoo.so.3.1-linkedagainst-libbar.so.4.2- -
linkedagainst-libwatever.so.5.3. Knowing the recursively real names of every
library an application has been tested with should be safe.
