The changelog in

http://packages.qa.debian.org/s/soundtouch/news/20110116T154758Z.html

says:

   * Rename libsoundtouch1c2 to libsoundtouch0 and libsoundtouch1-dev to
     libsoundtouch0-dev so we comply with policy.
     - Obsolete c2 naming due to CXX transition is not needed anymore.
     - ardour used to provide libsoundtouch0 and libsoundtouch0-dev as
       mentioned
       in #271108. These packages were removed in 2004.

So looks like a "transition" to me, and we probably need to readjust
ardour's build dependency (to libsoundtouch-dev). I can take care of
this if agreed upon.

It's libsoundtouch0-dev. The question is: Why doesn't libsoundtouch-dev exist?

Virtual unversioned -dev package names providing a corresponding versioned package is an optional convenience feature, not mandated. Also, it makes sense to use directly only if a single real package satisfies that virtual dependency at each distro suite.
