So the suggestion is to do the same as Debian does (slightly changed)
and split the .typelib in their own sub-packages. Our proposal is to
name those sub-packages in this form:

As the .typelib files themselves also have dependencies (to either
other .typelib files and/or to an actual shared library) I wrote a
dep-scanner for those yesterday that will add dependencies as needed.
This will make sure that all works smoothly together.

So, now, do we have any process to document this packaging policy? Do we

Would it be possible to implement a rpmlint
