-common package is a common files for -shlibs packages.

fooN-shlibs packages should be installable at the same time, but if
they contains a same file, /etc/foo.conf for example, they can't
coexists. In this case, foo-common package contains /etc/foo.conf
and all the fooN-shlibs depends on it. This is why we needs -common
package.
