Please wait at least until libgnutls10 and dependencies have made it
into sarge (there already seems to be manual intervention necessary,
mutt, gnutls and a bunch of other packages have to be ready at the
same time.)

Speaking with exim4-hat on: I have no plans currently to migrate to
gnutls10 before sarge's release. GnuTLS10 is brand-new in Debian and
compared to gnutls7 a lot less tested. Additionally I thought we were
trying to make a release real soon(TM) and switching library versions
(of libraries that are used by other libraries) has the potential of
influencing testing rather badly.
