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.
