OK, I just put in some changes which attempt to clone the exact state of the
files actually generated by the SONAME support. It's not totally working as
it should, and it never will in V1. But for now it should be reasonable, as
long as you don't use the "tag" features of stage for SONAMEd files.

Try it and tell me if it works for your needs.
