I'm not sure if this is by design or not. Any of the community 
developers know if this was an intended change in functionality? I'll 
check here with any of the CRI developers.

Yes, there is a reason to this change. After careful review, we found 
that the TORQUE library, which was versioned at 2:0:0 a while ago, did 
not break backwards compatibility with external API calls insofar as we 
can tell. Because of this, we changed the libtool versioning to 2:0:2, 
which tells the GNU tools to generate a library that will work with 
binaries that require libtorque.so.2.0.0 OR the libtorque.so.0 library.
