It need to be agreed some kind of fair play, I think.

When upgrading a library it should be informed about the list of packages
that depend on it, and can be broken.

the easiest way is to grep a dependent list, increase their $pkgrel
variable and commit it.

In case of libsodium is:
$ cd aports
$ grep -lr libsodium-dev */*/APKBUILD | xargs -n1 dirname

from this list the only main/zeromq commited to rebuild
