tag 528453 + wontfix

This report didn't really describe a bug. It's more a (loosely) feature
of Jed to check if the version used at runtime is at least as recent as
the version used while building. As said before, this warning comes up
everytime jed migrates faster to testing than libslang and vanishes when
libslang migrated.

We don't want to add a dependency to jed on the libslang version used at
buildtime, because this would drive the dynamic dependency system of
Debian useless—Debian's symbol bases dependency system is much more
accurate than jed's loosely feature. Jed wouldn't be installable on
testing or stable while the symbols of libslang didn't change since this
release and jed would work perfectly.

Because this problem raises one time every year or every two years this
bug report should be kept open to prevent further bug reports.

Bye, Jörg.
