The packaged version of fiona is not widely used. I don't think it
should stop us moving towards gdal 2.
If I'm not mistaking, the patches to build with GDAL 2 already exist,
so perhaps we can do an upload of that version to experimental (and
remove from sid).

A bit unconventional, but I think in this case the advantage of moving
towards GDAL2 are larger than sticking to fiona in sid/stretch.

Kind Regards,
