That’s a bit ouch, and pretty much a blocker, and (as far as my
understanding of M-A goes) the shared library would be a fix.

Helmut, can we do anything about this? I was thinking about a
Provides for the plugin ABI on the binary package, or even a
dummy package, like this (pseudocode, shortened)… actually, it
already Provides the ABI, so we can probably rotate things:


Package: nodejs
Depends: ${shlib:Depends}
Architecture: i386
Provides: nodejs-abi-46


Package: nodejs
Depends: ${shlib:Depends}
Architecture: i386
Multi-Arch: foreign

Package: nodejs-abi-46
Architecture: i386
Depends: nodejs (= ${some:version})

Does this even work?
