I don't think this is quite enough. What's preventing breakage on partial
upgrades where libdbi-perl is upgraded but libdbd-*-perl isn't?
For reference, I assume this is about
ii libdbd-pg-perl 2.17.1-1 Perl DBI driver for the PostgreSQL database server
ii libdbi-perl 1.610.90-1 Perl Database Interface (DBI)
% perl -MDBI -e 'DBI->connect("dbi:Pg:foo")'
install_driver(Pg) failed: DBI/DBD internal version mismatch (DBI is v95/s208, DBD Pg.xsi expected v94/s208) you probably need to rebuild the DBD driver (or possibly the DBI).
Compilation failed in require at (eval 3) line 3.
This comes from DBISTATE_VERSION in DBIXS.h, and I see it's the first
time the number changed in more than ten years (DBI-1.13 on CPAN has
I suppose just adding libdbi-perl Breaks: entries for the current versions
of libdbd-*-perl would be enough.
For a full binNMU-compatible solution, libdbi-perl could use
DBISTATE_VERSION to derive
or something like that, and the libdbd-*-perl packages should do the
same trick when they generate their dependencies.
Also, I doubt these are really needed:
> nmu libdbix-oo-perl_0.0.9-2 . ALL . -m "Rebuilt against new libdbi-perl."
> nmu libpoe-component-dbiagent-perl_0.26-1 . ALL . -m "Rebuilt against new libdbi-perl."

> nmu sympa_5.4.7-1 . ALL . -m "Rebuilt against new libdbi-perl."
as they don't seem to be DBD plugins and three of them are Arch:all anyway.
Hope this makes sense,
