The Release Team has tools in place to notify them if rebuilds are 
needed by looking at upper limits of Depends that are no longer 
satisfied. They show up as "auto-upperlimit-<pkg>" on the transitions 
page [1]. If that <pkg> has "abi" in the name, it will be clear that a 
rebuild is needed.

All the rebuilds are manually scheduled, but that's OK. As long as the 
Release Team is aware via such a mechanism, it will be taken care of.

The other auto-<pkg> items show up if a binary package disappears from 
the library section of the archive and another one shows up. This is how 
c transitions happen, because it's near required that a library binary 
package matches its SONAME, so when that's bumped (indicating a 
transition) the package name has to be updated too. Maybe we should move 
the fp-units-$bar packages to the library section too and embed the ABI 
version into the package name.
