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.

If I emailed you from an address @fyvzl.net or @evade.org.uk, that is
a private address which bypasses my fierce spamfilter.
