Takuo, what was your opinion about not naming "gal" source package
with version numbers ?

Wouldn't it help the "testing" distribution
(except for the size of archive?)
if there was gal18 and gal19 simultaneously, in archive.

Would it be too inconvenient to orphan older version of gal every time
when a new soname appears ?
