Anything compiled against the hamm glibc will work with any of the 2.0.7u
releases, including the fixed one I am preparing.

It is only those packages compiled against 2.0.7u that are at risk once
the fixed version is installed.

I'm not convinced that Conflicts: is a reasonable way to deal with this
problem. The size of this field in libc6 is already large, and none of
them can ever be removed, but I don't see any other way to move forward
