The 4.6 that is currently in stretch is in very bad shape. It could
perhaps be fixed but I don't think it's a good idea. It will have a
very limited upstream support lifetime.
But in any case I don't think 4.7 will be a problem for the rdeps
either. I explicitly checked libvirt (which is the biggest risk) and
it's fine - although it will need a rebuild.
