I assume it's RC because there is a package that needs to build-depend
on both? So far I've found it to be annoying, because I have to swap
libraries in and out while compiling different things, but not RC.

ITYM slang1-utf8-dev. No, it won't work. See bug #140808.

I've not found a way to accomidate the slang-utf8 ABI change in aalib
without also changing aalib's soname, but I've not tried very hard.
