This could work in this case since libpq4 is from the postgresql-8.1
source package and libpq5 from the postgresql-8.2 source package.
This wouldn't work with if it was from the same source package.
But I'm not sure if we really need to wait. I think postgresql-8.2
could be hinted into testing with an rc bug if it's really needed.
