Which I would do with attached patch, which causes this:
(SID)ametzler at argenau:/tmp/GNUTLS/gnutls-3.2.14/debian/tmp/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu$ ls -l libgnutls{-deb0,}.so*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 ametzler ametzler      25 May 24 12:58 libgnutls-deb0.so.28 -> libgnutls-deb0.so.28.30.5
-rwxr-xr-x 1 ametzler ametzler 4356504 May 24 12:58 libgnutls-deb0.so.28.30.5
lrwxrwxrwx 1 ametzler ametzler      25 May 24 12:58 libgnutls.so -> libgnutls-deb0.so.28.30.5

i.e. the library packge name would change to libgnutls-deb0-28. - Any
thoughts about it?

BTW: Upstream discussion starts here:

thanks, cu Andreas
