gdal 1.7 transition
I already uploaded the 1.7.3 version of the library in sid.
Interested package for a binNMU are currently:
Most of them will be updated for new releases soon, so I would
wait to issue any bin-nmu requests and live with some breakage
in the meantime.
That said, current 1.8.0 will be soon uploaded to experimental
and will introduce symbol versioning, to manage better problems
like that pointed in #558733.
