So I reviewed it and pushed the changes, which is mostly to squash the
changelog of .24 and .25 together and minor packaging changes which
probably are not important (didn't remember to commit separately,

I think that the bump in SONAME will bring the following complications:

- the binary .deb has a new name, thus has to go through the FTP
master's NEW queue (and can take weeks/months)

- all reverse-depends will have to be recompiled against the new
version (probably binNMU is enough, but since there are ~30 or so I
guess that some of them will fail to compile and complicate the

- I think that a transition should be opened with Release Managers,
the number of packages is high enough

I wonder if we can do something like the following to avoid at least
the 1st step:;filename=sdlgfx-2.0.20-1.1-nmu.diff;att=1;bug=549110
