I'm sad to read a response that seems to be blaming and
finger-pointing.  Debian is about building a *system* 
and we all need to work together to that end.

It seems to me that if you make a change that in turn requires a
change in other packages -- indeed, it explicitly *breaks* other
packages -- then it is incumbent on you to work with the other package
maintainers to achieve the required changes.  In the present case, it
appears that the libraw maintainer, for one, wasn't informed
(c.f. http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=453358).
