Does that fly with everyone else then?

My slightly-modified plans, then, are to package libmpeg3 as the

libmpeg3-dev [0]

If I don't hear any objections, I'll proceed this way.


[0] this shouldn't conflict with libmpeg, even if its major version
reaches 3, since the maintainer of libmpeg has opted for a single,
non-versioned libmpeg-dev.
