Today, while browsing through aptitude, I noticed that I had the following bdb versions installed: version: # of packages depending on it (apt-cache rdepends) libdb4.2 40 libdb4.3 26 libdb4.4 55 libdb4.5 64 libdb4.6 40 Having 5 different versions of one library is just insane imho. What are the reasons, that we still carry around the older versions, like 4.2 and 4.3? Is there software which doesn't build against newer versions, are there other reasons? Wouldn't it make sense to limit the number of bdb version in the archive to two or max. three?
