NetCDF 4.4.1 and HDF5 1.10.0

NetCDF 4.4.1-rc1 was released two days ago and is the first release
which will write backwards-compatible netCDF4 files properly when linked
against HDF5 1.10.0. [0]

Since both NetCDF 4.4.1 and HDF5 1.10.0 are in NEW, and will require a
transition in unstable, it's probably best to transition to NetCDF 4.4.1
before starting the transition to HDF5 1.10.0, otherwise we'll have a
netcdf/hdf5 combination in Debian (and possibly synced into Ubuntu) that
creates backwards-incompatible files in the time until the netcdf
transition is started.

Gilles, what are your thoughts about this?
