Before we get further, I need to make sure that I understand what you
mean.  If you say that libfoo1 is taking place of libfoo, it isn't
enough, because there are certain steps to be taken for that to be
handled properly.  If I understand correctly, we start with a single
CSWlibfoo/libfoo package and at the end of the process we have 2 (and
only 2) packages: CSWlibfoo1/libfoo1 + CSWlibfoo-dev/libfoo-dev.  If
you unpack the notion of "taking place", what exact steps does that
involve until the final state? (let's assume that CSWlibfoo has both
dependencies and dependent packages)
