If a library is not part of stable, the library packages names should
not be altered, so other backports don't need to have backport-specific
Build-Depends with respect to that very library.

The upgrade path from stable+backports to testing is not affected by this.

If a library was already part of stable, the library packages names
should be altered to match the stable ones *if* the soname didn't
change. Look at libextractor for an example :)
