I'm afraid I simply don't know and alas am simply not well-versed
enough in shared library foo to make any kind of judgement or even
comment; just playing the "triager" role. Can another lintian developer
chime in here?

Random thought; if this just affects "gnome packages", can we just skip
those? (If so, how?)

Quoting for posterity. *grin*
