Sorry, I did not realise that symlinks could be used for specific js
libraries in this way. I thought they were handled at the webserver
level, with an alias.

Yes indeed, the packages that I hope will enter Debian one day are like
this. One major problem that I have with convincing our upstream
developers to support Debian is that they could not predict the specific
library version available, so it is easier for them to bundle in the
library. Jerome's patch addresses this issue for libjs-jquery-cookie.
