Just as a side comment, I notice that the package in unstable still includes
a -dev package named libsasl2-2-dev.  Why?  IMHO there's no value whatsoever
in renaming the -dev package.  I thought we had discussed this and I
persuaded you to revert this, but maybe we only talked about the plugin
package names?

Anyway, that's not a blocking issue by any means; it just makes me a little
nervous to hear about maintainers switching to build-depending on this new
package name, which is by its nature far less stable than the existing
libsasl2-dev name.
