[Python-modules-team] Bug#640979: libqscintilla2-6: package name change breaks other packages dependencies

Package: libqscintilla2-6
Version: 2.5.1-1
Severity: wishlist

Sorry for this newbie question:

Why did you change the package *name* for a *version* change?

The package changed its name from libqscintilla2-5 to libqscintilla2-6

It made, for instance, serna package uninstallable, see Bug #640948.
A rebuild of the serna package against the new libqscintilla2-6 is sufficient to
get it working again.

Shouldn't it be enough to change the version in the package and not the name?
