debian-ada-policy, dependency across -dev packages


Templates-Parsers Build-Depends: XMLAda because one of its bodies uses
it. None of the interfaces depends on XMLAda.

Libtemplates-parser-dev in unstable does not Depends: libxmlada-dev,
and its /usr/share/ada/adainclude/templates-parsers.gpr does not
import xmlada.gpr. All works wells.

However, I wonder if this is good
  Rationale: The intention is not that the user can recompile the
  library from @file{/usr/share/ada/adainclude/LIBRARY}; only that
  they can use it in their Ada programs.  They can always recompile
  the library from the source package
or bad
  Rationale: This allows programmers using GDB to trace the execution
  of their programs into the library.  See below @ref{The separate
  debugging information package}.
Any opinions?
