foo-data (sourcename based)
vs.
libfoo1-data (library +soversion based)
vs.
libfoo-data (library without soversion based)

on a related note... what about -dev and -dbg packages?

personally I'd go for libfoo-data by default. if a package has
multiple libraries it should be foo-data instead though.
same goes for -dev, although I'll also argue that with multiple libs
there should either be multiple dev packages or the libs should not be
split to begin with. personally I don't see the point in splitting kio
for example.
