debhelper is backwarts compatible, if anybody sets anywhere a '(=
$version)' depends to debhelper, he must be fucking stupid.

normally, you all packages with dh4, except where a) the package
declares a dh5 build-depends, or b) the packages is broken and requires
dh5 without declaring it (like libdjvulibre).
