As mentioned in the proposal[1], you only need to add gf -suffix for
shared library packages. Applications and other packages don't need it.

If, in the mean time, a new upstream release comes in and I have to move it to unstable, do I revert to the old Build-Depends, build it for unstable etc. and then rebuild it with the new Build-Depends for experimental, or is there a better way? Also bear in mind that I would have to request sponsorship for both editions! :-)

Until refblas and lapack are uploaded to unstable, you need to revert
the build-depends for unstable uploads. As for sponsorship, please mail
me and I'll upload on evening.
