I see more than a cultural issue here.

Suppose you write bindings to somelib-1.0.2, and release it with
somelib-1.0.2. Then, somelib-1.0.3 is released to solve a serious
security issue with 1.0.2. Linux or unix distributions will update
their repositories, but users of your bindings will blindly keep
using 1.0.2.
