Library packages to upload

Things to avoid

  1. perl-5.14 (not yet in Debian). (proposed).

Library updates to avoid

  1. Don't sync libraries from unstable which are just converted to multiarch; these conversions may cause build breakage, which is not yet fixed in unstable.
  2. don't bump boost beyond 1.46.x
