Reviewing libdbd-sqlite-perl we are back to square one.
libdbd-sqlite-perl does not exist in stable
libdbd-sqlite-perl in testing is 0.29 (SQLite 2)
libdbd-sqlite-perl in unstable is 0.33 (SQLite 2)
libdbd-sqlite-perl in experimental is 1.08 (SQLite 3)
libdbd-sqlite-perl (<< 1) provides DBD::SQLite (SQLite 2)
libdbd-sqlite-perl (>> 1) provides DBD::SQLite (SQLite 3)
libdbd-sqlite-perl (>> 1) can't read SQLite 2 files
I hope everyone sees the fsck up now.
What we need is:
libdbd-sqlite-perl -> SQLite 2, provides DBD::SQLite
libdbd-sqlite2-perl -> SQLite 2, provides DBD::SQLite2 (per upstream)
libdbd-sqlite3-perl -> SQLite 3, provides DBD::SQLite (per upstream)
In this way existing scripts won't break silently after 'apt-get
upgrade' and people have a chance to plan ahead. It's butt-ugly, but
go yell at upstream for that.
