It hasn't happened *intentionally*. I'm not going to break many Perl
scripts without warning. We have a release where gdbm is deprecated and
then next release, Perl won't be linked with it. I'll check in the
preinst and if they're upgrading from a release with gdbm to one
without, I mention this and ask them if they want to continue.
