First of all: I have no idea where this "somewhere" is, and indeed I find that
naming *of the source package* very strange. This naming requirement is true for
the binary packages, however, and therefore I wonder whether you could just call
those "liblastfm{1,-dev}"?

And there is more to be fixed:

- lastfmlib/unittest/lastfmclientmock.h lacks both copyright and license
  information. Upstream must get that sorted out first.
- I could not find any essential changes in debian-changes-0.4.0-1.
- It would be desirable to enable the unittests at build time.
- A selection of lintian messages to be addressed:
  I: liblastfmlib source: binary-control-field-duplicates-source field "section" in package liblastfmlib1
  I: liblastfmlib source: duplicate-short-description liblastfmlib-dev liblastfmlib1
  I: liblastfmlib source: duplicate-long-description liblastfmlib-dev liblastfmlib1
  W: liblastfmlib-dev: description-synopsis-starts-with-article
  W: liblastfmlib1: description-synopsis-starts-with-article

Best regards,
Michael
