Well, perhaps I havent described the issue good enough. I just want to 
link two libraries staticly that are in newer/incompatible versions in 
Debian archive already. The next major release of cyphesis-cpp will use 
the newer libs in debian archive again. I just want make this 
installable while we wait for the next major release in about a year or 
later. I thought adding the upstream tarballs to the orig.tarball would 
be a good idea to not need to package an old version of two libraries 
that will only be needed by one package for limited time.

Hopefully this clears the clouds a bit.
