No, but you could keep the same package name to ease upgrades, bump the
shlibs, and provide a backwards-compatible symlink for libpisync.so.0 ->
discussion of the similar problem in boost.
I confirm that there are no symbols added or removed between libpisync0 and
libpisync1. I haven't checked that their arguments are unchanged, but if
they are, I really would recommend rolling back the package name and
providing this sort of compatibility shim, maintaining compatibility both
with third-party binaries and with pre-existing Debian binary packages.
