[Pkg-scicomp-devel] libmesh -dev package - why versioned?

The new libmesh is due out in a day or two, and I'd like to package it
pretty quickly. (It fixes a very significant performance bug.) I don't
think it will get into Lenny, but I need it. In fact, I already have
the package ready based on SVN, and am just waiting for the tarball.
I've been wondering, why do the -dev packages have the version number in
them? One can't really install multiple -dev packages at once. And if
something else build-deps on it, that package can version its build-dep
to ensure it gets the right API.
Do you mind if I change them to just libmesh-dev and libmesh-pure-dev
instead of libmesh0.6.3(-pure)-dev?
