Hi David,

Thanks for the points, we have fixed everything you mentioned. For the
d-pointer and SONAME issues, I understand we should be more vigilant from
now on and take care of these things. While the mistake in the first
release is undoable, I think its better we fix things right now, as we
don't really have more than a couple of people using the libs outside
In a summary, we've added d-pointers wherever there is a public header and
updated SONAME so the release 1.1 will have 1.1 set as SONAME.

Also, the krazy issues are fixed as well, alongwith support for translation
with lot of help :)
