 I'm not sure -X does what you think: it does not filter out shlib deps
 on some depended on library, it filters out files to search ELF deps
 in.  Anyway, it doesn't seem possible (there's no per package override,
 DEB_DH_SHLIBDEPS_ARGS_<package>).  The contrary doesn't seem possible
 either (override shlibs versions with another one for a specific binary

 I'll also check with upstream if this "current upstream coherence" is
 still required in 0.9 since ds pointed out that at least ELF deps have
 been sorted out.
