    Make libmutter and friends parallel installable · 4ebc55f2

    In order to minimize the amount of breakage, while at the same time
    making it easier to make backward incompatible changes needed to
    continue turning libmutter into a capable Wayland compositor, make the
    libmutter and friends (libmutter-clutter, libmutter-cogl*) parallel
    installable by adding a version number to the name. This changes
    various filenames, for example what previously was libmutter.so is now
    libmutter-0.so (assuming the version for now is 0), and
    libmutter-clutter-1.0.so is now libmutter-clutter-0.so. The pkg-config
    filenames and GObject introspection has been renamed to reflect this as
    well.
    
    This enables a downstream compositor rely on a specific version of the
    libmutter API, while gracefully handling API/ABI changes by having to
    update to the new version at their own pace.
