It might be practical to remove everything, but I think we should only
disallow packages depending on the old libc5 package. We really need
the old shared libs and maybe want to have some kind of new
development libs for backward compatibility.

Nevertheless, I think we should start working on hamm iff bo is
released. There is enough for us to do until then.
