That's an interesting idea, but I personally don't see the manylinux1 list
as particularly
"scientific". If anything, I'd call it "minimal".

This would be something, but if we want to have Linux binary wheels that
tightly integrate
with system libraries for certain use cases, the *really *valuable thing
would be https://github.com/pypa/interoperability-peps/pull/30/files, more
so than specific ABI tags, IMO.
