note that, for upgrades to work properly, both abi versions must be
upgraded at once [otherwise we'd have a new library version using an old
conffile or vice-versa].  Since both upgrades are happening
simultaneously, it shouldn't be *too* hard to recognize and elide the
duplicated dialog.

As part of the screaming mob, I think doing so is essential to make
multiarch feel like a first-class port.
