Please reread the thread in the bugzilla report. That is what 
I meant when I said this had been discussed before.

Sorry, but AFAIK this is an incompatibility with all the rest of the
repositories that I know. AFAIK this was not imposed on you but was a
free packaging choice you made. 

When you originally split the package you thought there would be no side
effects, but there were. I have made similar mistakes in the past and I
have, over time, moved over to the "standard" used by most other
packagers. This is, again, just my opinion with regards to _this_
particular package and the incompatibilities it created, not an opinion
about packaging guidelines for libraries in general (I don't think this
is the appropriate list for that discussion).
