advice on package


I'm the maintainer of slrn, a newsreader. This newsreader depends on 
libslang. Now, the different versions of libslang are not compatible with 
each other, so when somebody upgrades libslang without upgrading slrn 
also, slrn breaks. Other ways around also: when somebody upgrades slrn 
(which is presumably linked with a different version of libslang the user 
has), slrn breaks too.

Does anybody has any suggestions on how this should be handled? I myself 
was thinking of something like 'Depends: libslang (=version)'.

Will this approach catch all possible misconfigurations?

Suggestions are very welcome
