Oh, wonderful news!  This means with a bit of planning, we should be
able to get gnutls7 and openldap2 into testing just 10 days after it
clears the NEW queue, without needing to rebuild other packages

FWIW, bug #198709 probably doesn't affect many packages.  Most apps
don't need to pass around any connection state besides a file
descriptor; OpenLDAP is somewhat of a special case in this regard.  But
I'm sure it's a good idea to drop gnutls5 anyway, for ease of long-term
