For a package of 'daemon with a shared library interface'
it seems to be logical to have a package for the
daemon and the shared library, yet they would
probably be logical to depend on each other.
In the case of mysql/pgsql, the shared libraries
don't depend on the database; may be a good idea to
extend this; but some shared libraries simply don't
function without the daemon.
In that case, it might be better to make it
into a single package.
I have in mind jackd/libjack as an example,
which currently only have recommends on jackd.
