Changing the name of a library (was: CLI packaging: glue module location?)

To better reflect a remark from Micro, I have been changing the
current naming convention of the C# gluelib for gdcm:

$ dpkg -L libgdcm-cil

will becomes (in gdcm 2.0.12):


Is there anything special I should do to make sure upgrade goes
smoothly in the debian package.

Hm? You wrote the C# binding for gdcm? Using C# in the lib name is
very wrong in all cases. The CIL bytecode can be used by any language
that targets the CLI. To give some examples: VB.NET, Boo, Nemerle (yes,
those are all in debian already :)).

There is a common prefix of nFOO (like nunit or nant) and for
bindings even more common is the suffix of FOO-sharp (not -csharp)
like gtk-sharp, gnome-sharp, evolution-sharp.
