I suppose you'd also want to stop passing -V to dh_makeshlibs,
since the symbol versioning should take care of setting the version.
-V without any parameters is evil anyway.

Although, what happens if a package is built against the library on
a buildd that doesn't have the new dpkg-dev yet? It would generate a
wrong unversioned dependency in this case.
