No you can't, if you can it's a bug and should be fixed. The
problem is that the filename of the library does not change while
the ABI does change. This means that the new version actually
has to conflict with the old version, since you obviously can't
install 2 files with the same name, nor would you be able to find
the correct library even if you could.
Anyway, it's going to rather hard to properly get things
installed in unstable while this transition is going on. If you
want to be able to install packages without such problems, you
should be using testing instead.
