I did communicate this to LaMont on IRC as I was preparing the fix, but I
honestly wasn't expecting cyrus-sasl2 to get changed quite so quickly (the
median time for multiarch patches getting applied is much longer than 5
hours :), so I didn't express any urgency for getting that patch into
Debian.  Sorry about that.

LaMont, can this multiarch fix be included in the next postfix upload?  That
would at least let the cyrus-sasl2 maintainers set the Breaks: so that
people don't break their mailservers unwittingly.

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
