With the baseline ABI definition step out of the way, there's now the
non-trivial task of getting this baseline to the point where folks can
actually use it in practice to distribute pre-built binaries for their
projects: https://github.com/pypa/manylinux/issues/179

If you think I've missed any essential steps from that tracking issue,
or if there are other projects you think would be worth mentioning in
the "Other projects to consider..." section, please let me know,
either here, or on the issue.
