I really fear I understand what was done. First libspandsp3 was made
available, then it disappeared, and was replaced back with libspandsp1?!

Given the upload and build dates, that seems the only reasonable option
to explain how libspandsp3 got in Depends (through shlibs:Depends) at
some point of that past while libspandsp3 is currently available
nowhere. And that was done without triggering binNMUs to try and make
package at least installable?

What. The. Hell.
