I think mostly this:
* Use ustream sonames and lintian suggested package names
(unless it is useless renaming, i.e. keep the name if the current
Debian package has the same soname).
* If possible mark eo symbols specially in debian symbols e.g.
1.15.1-0+eo+1, to allow us to note if packages use them.
* Try to find out what else is considered unstable and simply do not
ship it if possible. (C++ bindings?)

If there is a core efl library on which every other efl library
depends (directly or indirectly) we could use a Breaks on this package
instead of the virtual one.
