This, however, would mean that we would have to introduce a new source
i.e. jquery5.6 which ships libjs-jquery56.
So, in a particular case of YUI, my thoughts are:
1. Change YUI 2.8.2r1 package to include libjs-yui28 binary package.
and provide a virtual package libjs-yui.
2. Eventually introduce a new source package: yui3.5, which ships
libjs-yui35, and libjs-yui as a virtual pointing to the newer library, then
drop that in the above package.
Does this make sense? Do you guys agree?
Note: Since we currently need this in Ubuntu ASAP, I'll probably introduce
the yui3.5 package in Ubuntu before it hits Debian.
