Ok, I am convinced.

That leaves the question: Should libraries depend on the exact version
(including Debian revision), requiring possible unnecessary re-builds of
parts of the dependency tree, or should they depend on the upstream
version only, with the risk of temporary breakage until it’s noticed and
binNMUs have been done?
