Aren't the above three packages *from* pilot-link?  So that wouldn't seem to
require a separate rebuild.  Also, I don't see libpisock++ in experimental;
is it no longer being provided?  It doesn't seem to have any reverse deps in
testing, so dropping it isn't really a problem AFAICS if this is what's

Well, I don't imagine that we'll be dropping evolution from Debian for this
reason.  341172 has a patch, but you report that it's not enough to get the
package building with libpisock9.  Can you please work with the evolution
maintainers to find a solution to this before uploading to unstable, since
a blocked evolution in unstable can cause other problems rather quickly?

Otherwise, I don't have any objections to this transition.
