Ok.  My only concern is that lintian said for 3.2.0~rc1 that this name
is a greater version number than 3.2.0, so I don't know if we are going
to have problems later.  I think I remeber we could add a "+" sign un
order to overcome this issue, but I'm not sure.

Oh, sorry!  I already suggested doing so for the openwalnut bug, I need
to rectify that.  Anyway, if it is not working, I will have to tell
upstream that deprecated_osg is not working as it should.

Is it not enough for them to stick with an older version of the library?
As long as someone is using them, they should not be removed from the
archive, am I right?
