If you take libraryname to be the filename (which seems to be the case

zlib1g, mesag3, netpbm1, etc.. (The first two still state they are
librarys, the 2nd two do not..)

I'd like to rename zlib's binary packages, but until we get versioned provides, I can't, due to the >= 1.1.3 in the shlibs file.
