I think what Fred meant is that they need to start thinking about versioning
their libs and libtool is a nice example here.

But then only the python interface would work. Other packages depending on the
c++ interface wouldn't work. I found this wiki entry where I'm reading:
""Currently, the only generally accepted use of this feature in Debian is to add
non-standard library path (like /usr/lib/<package>) to libraries that are only
intended to be used by the executables or other libraries within the same source
So either with rpath nor static linking we can provide libs for objcryst-fox
with our package

Great! But I don't see anything on the wiki page yet...
