Are there dependencies from the -ddeb to the binary? Because you'd want to
update/upgrade your ddeb when you update the library, otherwise it becomes
useless. I imagine there can't be given that the binaries of our source
package might not be co-installable.
Is there a rationale why this was done differently from Ubuntu?
