Do users really want to see such idiosyncratic suffixes?

Ditto here. This seems to break well-known conventions.
If I look at /usr/lib{,64} on my machine, I can't see a single
shared libary file that ends neither in ".so" nor ".so.<some digits>".

Before trying to find a solution to your problem, I think it would be
nice to get a consensus that this is really a desired feature.
