Thanks for checking.

libserf just contains /usr/share/doc stuff, so it doesn't require 
libserf0. libserf-devel contains the importlib and that does require

That's the way upstream is doing it, I guess. I don't know why. Should I 
rename the packages to libserf0, libserf0-devel, and libserf0-0? Debian 
uses libserf-0-0, libserf-0-0-dbg, and libserf-0-0-dev.
