That's how upset handles it :}. The current pre-release setup has
support for completely separate source packages (as per apt or rpm's
approach), but no syntax in the setup.ini to declare those packages yet.
Once everything else in setup is of high enough quality to support that
properly, then we can discuss here the best way to tell setup of the
source package details.

I think it's your call.... However in dpkg, the apt system allows one
package to upgrade another, so libguile14-devel can be 'replaced' by
libguile15-devel. We don't have that functionality yet, so you need to
name the package libguile-devel if it be a single upgrade path for the
development stuff.
