Using e.g. svn with status and diff should solve such problems in the
future ;)

Okay I just thought, you may do those changes in future release, but
okay now we are doing it in the right way :)

In general it looks good, but you have missed one important thing, if
you split up packages: conflicts and replaces.

Now, if users upgrade from 7.0 to 7.33, dpkg would abort, because the
- -common package include files, which are also present in the
- -client/-server package.
So you have to define replaces and conflicts in debian/control.
