No it's not. Both are built from the same source package (the maintainer
seems to have decided not to change the source package name when the
soname changes, which would solve the problem), and when libgal<n+1>
arrives libgal<n> is no longer built from source.

  [cjwatson@auric ~/ftp/pool/main/g/gal]$ grep Binary: gal_0.10-1.dsc
  Binary: libgal-data, libgal9, libgal-dev
  [cjwatson@auric ~/ftp/pool/main/g/gal]$ grep Binary: gal_0.11.2-1.dsc
  Binary: libgal-data, libgal11, libgal-dev
