Still a lot of packages.

Is any binary packages going to break if we just upload the new libav
without changing anything else? Does it matter if this causes FTBFS in
supported packages before if/we fix them too?

It looks like the soname is different, that is good.

libpostproc-dev will be uninstallable - does this matter?

Or do we have to somehow upload everything in one single atomic batch?

For now, I am going to look at creating a simple staging area with
reprepro on people.debian.org
