If you have new features shlibs needs to be bumped. To fix this in sid
it looks like you have to upload the old 0.7 version with an epoch or
as 1.0-realy-0.7 and recompile everything against it (assuming nothing
uses the new features yet).
Both is rather ugly.
Uploading t-p-u versions looks cleaner.
(but do what RM says)
