It is important that this becomes the default behavior, so that libraries fail to build on other architectures, where the symbol list can be different. > This scheme allows to simply follow the history of the package without > complicating too much the life of the maintainer. > > Furthermore non-versioned libraries export many private functions which > can appear and disappear, and it shouldn't necessarily fail because of > that.

It seems normal to update the file manually when the library switches some symbols to not be exported. Cheers, -- .''`. : :' : We are debian.org.
