Shouldn't the shared libraries be split into separate packages

Those libraries *are* splitted into separate packages, we
have libncurses5 for 5.6 and libncurses6 for 6.0.

But you have libncurses.so.5.6 and libncursesw.so.5.6 in
libncurses5 and libncursest.so.6.0 and libncursestw.so.6.0
in libncurses6, right? I was suggesting to have libncursest6,
libncursestw6, libncursesw5 and libncurses5.

That is needlessy more packages.

$ rpm -e libncurses5 2>&1 | grep libncurses.so | wc -l
33
$ rpm -e libncurses5 2>&1 | grep libncursesw.so | wc -l
12

And that's a fair share already IMHO to put them together,
like it is done in SUSE 11.0.
