kdemultimedia creates lots of binaries [0]. Do you know exactly which of them 
use the old mb?

Pino told me to check if kcddb 4.9 has switched to mb5 and it did, but I don't 
know for sure if any other package is using it.

Please **note** that I'm mostly speaking **for myself**: *if* the patches are 
accepted upstream and we manage to get them before the freeze (we uploaded 
kdemultimedia a few days ago, so we will wait for it to enter unstable), I 
don't think there will be much problem in applying them.
