The normal procedure is to rename the binary package to 
libgtop2-1 (it should probably have been libgtop2.0-1, but 
people seem to have their own tastes about this.)
And then noting each maintainer to recompile against the new package,
and optionally doing a mass-NMU and uploading to DELAYED queue...

A reference document for library package naming is available here:
