Maybe having both version available would be an idea ?
The same as lua has multiple versions with the version embedded in the
source and binary packages names: lua5.1, lua5.2, ...

FOX 1.6 in Debian already has the version too in package names:
src:fox1.6, libfox-1.6-0, libfox-1.6-dev, libfox-1.6-doc

So this would be "easy" to add support for FOX 1.7 in a fox1.7 source
package building libfox-1.7-0, libfox-1.7-dev, libfox-1.7-doc.

That way, if the transition is hard enough from 1.6 to 1.7, it will
avoid pressing all users of FOX 1.6 to upgrade to 1.7.
