Looking at the two packages, it appears Dominique's includes everything
that mine does and more. Therefore, I suggest the use of his package.

Is it truly necessary for these packages to include the full version
number as opposed to simply the major release number (or even just
excluding the final part and using libparrot-3.x). If either of these is
possible, it would create a more stable and maintainable package which
would not require manual review quite so often.
As a side note, Rakudo and Rakudo star both have expected releases this
month as well. It is probably worth knowing the version of Parrot that
these releases will require. I believe that users would greatly benefit
from a rakudo-star package in Debian and this will mean a dependency on
an updated version of Parrot.
