Although I am just a simple DM, I still don't agree completely. Both my
upstreams call binaries (not libraries) in their programs (via a shell
or system call). As far as I can tell, that won't (and should not by the
name) be picked up by the ${shlibs:Depends} variable. Especially for the
shell call, I don't see an other way than providing it manually.

Here I think I agree.
