Version: 0.32
Severity: wishlist

When packaging code that depends on the clang Python bindings, it seems
undesirable to make it "Depends: python-clang-3.6" or whatever the
current version is, knowing that we'll have to update it for new clang
versions. Please consider adding:

Package: python-clang
Depends: python-clang-${pv:llvm} ${reqv:llvm}

Package: python-lldb
Depends: python-lldb-${pv:llvm} ${reqv:llvm}

(Specifically, one of my colleagues is looking into packaging
<https://github.com/hotdoc/hotdoc_c_extension>, a gtk-doc replacement
which parses C using clang instead of regular expressions.)
