What does sound odd exactly? If it's just the name ... who cares? If
you're instead worried about exact tuning of dependencies, this can be
done using versioned dependencies as usual. Versioned dependencies have
the advantage that they can be changed in debian/control without the
need of manual processing by the release managers.
