- the upload isn't marked as a NMU

- the package does not build from source (calls ldconfig):

- the package does not build a -dev package. Correct?

- the package overwrites the old library? Correct, if it's an
  extension only. But then it needs to be marked in the shlibs file.
  Else you need to build a libsafe2 and libsafe-dev package.
  OTOH, no package depends on libsafe.

So it seems, we don't gain much to replace one buggy version with the
next buggy version.
