I noticed that the modemmanager aport has a separate libmm-glib-dev
subpackage. I wonder why it needs to be separate from our traditional

I know that we for some packages make exception, like libpq and
libmysql may make sense to have separate -dev package for, but in this
case it seems that libmm-glib-dev needs to depend on modemmanager-dev:

Can we simply drop the libmm-glib-dev package and put all the
development files into modemmanager-dev, like we do with the rest of
our aports?
