It needs to be activated by the maintainers, which is intrusive. That
should be the default behavior for the coming weeks. And then changed
when some carefully chosen targets have been migrated from top to

But forcing every maintainer that probably had an agenda for their
package already, to comply to yours without even knowing what's coming
is at the very least tactless and disruptive.

Any change of that magnitude has to come in step by step, inch by
inch. I'm really serious here, I believe that the current behavior of
dpkg-shlibdeps is premature, and that it needs a progressive and
incremental introduction.
