I have the feeling that we would confuse several commit messages into a
single one.

Don't you find it awkward to see something like this ?

    Dpkg::Shlibs::SymbolFile: included files don't need to repeat the header line
    Adjust the parser to remember the current soname when processing an
    included file so that it doesn't need to repeat (and duplicate!) a header
    line. Update dpkg-gensymbols's manual page accordingly. And add a
    non-regression test for this feature.

    French translation update for scripts

    Bump Standards-Version to 3.7.3 (no changes)

    dpkg-shlibdeps.pl: doesn't warn any more about libm.so.6 being unused
    If the binary is also linked against libstdc++, the warning is suppressed
    since g++ always add an implicit -lm.

Obviously I took unrelated change by different authors at different dates, but
I care only about the fact that reading this, you don't see directly where
each logical change starts and ends.
