Put the two things in two separate modules, and tie them together in
the modules file like this :-

lump: &projcode &sharedlib

Obviously you will be able to provide more descriptive module names.
You can then associate mutually-compatible versions of the two things
by tagging the "lump" module.

Consult the mailing list archive for more detailed discussion of these
issues - it comes up regularly.
