Re: C++ ABI transition for etch

A proposal for a simplification, which reduces/avoids the renaming of
the KDE packages. All KDE packages depend directly or indirectly on
libqt3, so it is enough to rename the packages libqt3c102 to libqt3
and libqt3c102-mt to libqt3-mt and add a conflict with th old name.
This way, you cannot install qt3 dependent packages which are built
with different compiler versions. This avoids renaming about 100 out
of 400 packages containing libraries.

Doing the same with gnome (the basic library package is
libglibmm-2.4-1) would only touch 10 more library packages, so it's
maybe not worth the trouble.
