Well...  I am still figuring things out.  Looking at the API changes 
from 4.8->5.0, it seems this should not be a hard rebuild...

We are going to need a 'db4' package as some things on the rebuild list 
probably should not be updated to db5 yet.  I believe Jan wants 
evolution-data-server to stay built against db4.8 and I would prefer 
python to do so too (until upstream OKs it).

So my plan is:
1) update db to 5.0
2) upload db4 package
3) post message telling everyone using [testing] to install db4 (with 
4) start rebuilds - these can be done slowly due to the db4 package and 
I recommend maintainers decide what gets updated to db5 or not.

Expect db4 and updated db to hit the repos soon.
