Assuming 1.7 does not break the ABI.  The problem here is that modules
built for 1.6 won't run on 1.7, even if the ABI hasn't changed, because
these modules won't find the DLL anymore.  In this case your update
to a newer package would break self-built modules for no good reason.

That's why the libs for OpenSSL 1.0.2 are still called cygssl-1.0.0 and
cygcrypto-1.0.0, and that's why many packages maintain runtime packages
which only consist of the DLLs of a package, e.g. libreadline7,
libncurses10, etc.  That allows to keep older DLL around for a while.
