History seems to suggest that maintainers are *always* going to submit
updates that cause dependency problems, so it seems sensible to look at
handling the situation after submission as well as trying to make people
_not_ submit such updates.

I believe the maintainer said in the submission that he simply didn't
catch the ABI change:

"Oh, I see, I didn't notice this change earlier. It was changed in
server/commit/?h=gnome-2-30&id=9930a9602 "
