Packaging of libdb-6+

as Oracle is unlikely to re-license the libdb6 back to GPL, I like to
bring up the possibility of the libdb6 package. The idea is that the
current libdb package would still provide the libdb-5+, which is still
under GPL, and the new package would provide the newest, AGPL-ed libdb.

I would like to hear opinions on this idea, and any suggestions are welcome.
