After all the input here i investigated the problem again. First: Such a a
version reference exists, but it is not used automatically from what i can
tell. Second: the problem i encountered perhaps only occours at the
current upgrade (4.3.5->4.4.0). I will talk with upstream about this.
They were very cooperative in the past. If this is the case, i think a
note in the README.Debian will do as i made the old package not public
available. If its a general problem we'll see.
But thanks for all the advice :-)
