For completeness, I've been installing non-wide form, panel, etc.  No
idea if any binaries reference them, e.g. using dlopen.  The non-wide
.so potentially conflicts with what we have been doing for
from-source packages which might want non-wide, which is why I only
installed .so.5* in my modified instructions.

But yes, please change it.
