(sonames) to dependencies suitable for a package control file. There is one
entry per line. Blank lines are not allowed. Lines beginning

The library and version fields are whitespace-delimited,
but the dependencies field extends to the end of the line. The
type field is optional and normally not needed.
The dependencies field has the same syntax as the Depends
field in a binary control file, see deb-control(5).
See also the Debian Policy Manual for further details.

symbols to the library: in the above example, new symbols were added to
version 1.2 of
libcrunch. This is not the only reason the dependencies might need to be
