If all you want to do is to have both libssl0.9.8 and libssl1.0.0
both in testing at the same time, I don't see why you want to do
it like that.  I could just upload a openssl098 source package
just containing libssl0.9.8(-dbg), and have the openssl source
package provide libssl1.0.0 and libssl-dev.  It shouldn't take
that long for the openssl098 pacakge to migrate to testing.

I could also upload an openssl098 source package that provides
the libssl0.9.8(-dbg) and libssl-dev binary package.  And I would
upload an openssl source package that provides libssl1.0.0(-dbg),
openssl, and libcrypto1.0.0-udeb, so without -dev package.  And
once openssl098 is migrated to testing I could change the -dev
package.  But it seems to be more work, and I don't see the what
that would gain us.
