  The problem with libgal is not only trying to follow it, and have to
 recompile a new package each time a new libgal is uploaded in Debian,
 but also that as libgal changes from time to time the API, I can face
 one day with a libgalxx which does not match the API of my package
 (what, btw, has yet happened with Ximian Setup Tools 0.6.0)

  This is the main problem. The other only implies a little waste on
 bandwith and some time of the autobuilders.

  Anyway, I'll look very close the package before uploading it.
