You mean: The library in stable is just to be removed, and you must
upgrade to the new version? In this case a Build-Dep again one of them
could lead to a build against the old version. Furthermore, the build
could lead to different dependencies on different architectures due to
the autobuilders. So, I think ORed build-depends (or virtual) should
be avoided if possible.
