+geos (3.3.1-4) unstable; urgency=low
+   GEOS provides a (stable) C API and an unstable C++ one. Most programs use
+   the stable interface. See for
+   details. Starting from this version we are trying to short the list of
+   reverse build-deps that require erroneously linking both C/C++ and binary
+   NMUs.
+   A program which depends on the C++ API has to b-depend on the libgeos++-dev
+   which in turn depends on the right libgeosVERSION lib. All
+   other programs has to b-depend on the C libgeos-dev package, which 
+   depends only on the C stable interface (currently libgeos1).
