Bug#2307: xpm4.7 has no Maintainer field
Well, I would have thought dpkg would croak and die in that case.

Yes---as I understand it, the package name should reflect the soname
of the shared library (4.7) so we can have multiple versions
installed, while the version name reflects the upstream version
This is what ncurses, tcl/tk, gdbm/dbm, etc. do as well. Their
sonames just aren't quite as unrelated to the version.
