Yes, please do this. I wanted to wait till just after the 2006Q1 branch
to bump the default dependency so we would have time to catch any
breakage before the next branch. Now is the best time for this change.
Does this change involve any PKGREVISION bumps for dependent packages or
does binary package naming already take care of this?
