Maybe a better choice in this specific case would be introducing a new
binary package (libgdal1h) that Conflicts/Breaks against libgdal1 and provides
the usual library with the usual name/soname. Of course, that will force a lot of bNMUs
and an explicit unblocking set to complete the transition properly. Make sense?
