would be great, but symbol files do not allow the same flexibilty as a

Ah yes, I forgot.

Which ones? can you compile a list?

Has been attached to my last reply.

This could be a lintian bug, the whole situation maybe needs some more
thought: we generate the shlibs file twice: first time for the internal
dependencies, and then we regenerate them for inclusion in the
package. The point of this excercice is to have the 'internal'
dependencies more strict than 'external' ones. We have implemented this
so that we make mixing ffmpeg libraries with the ones from marillat

Thanks, yes, I know the details. I have been "around" when this has been implemented. ;)

I was wondering, because lintian once throw an error because of this hack. We have overridden it, because we called the commands in an odd order for good reason. Apparently this check has been removed from lintian or maybe lintian even likes the idea or whatever. ;)

Perhaps this should be documented in some comment, but the rules file is
already pretty convoluted as it is now.

For people from the outside, who have a look at the package, however it will look somehow insane. I think a short comment (just the sentence I quoted from your previous mail above) would be enough to convince everyone, I guess.
