contemplations of libelf

Well, after a lot of fiddling and hacking and threatening of dpkg, I finally
managed to get libelf compiling with compliant sources. Before I
upload it, though, I want a few things cleared up:

  1) Should I rename the package to "libelf0" (Replaces: and Conflicts: libelf)
     in the same way that libc has libc4 and libc5?
  2) Since libelf has a couple of header files also found in libc (which
     really shouldn't be there IMO, since libc doesn't implement those
     functions), I've added a Replaces: libc. Is this a Bad Thing(tm)? (it
     seemed the right thing to do when I was poking around the policy/
     programmers' manual...)

I'd appreciate responses; I don't want to tread on anybody's toes here...
