Great job on finding this!

So TODO for python-omniorb:

* Figure out if we want to change the name and take care of upgrade
  path if so.

* Figure out what to do with /usr/lib in the binary package.

This also has an issue omnicpp segfaulting on ARM.  However it's
probably best to leave that for now so python-omniorb can be uploaded
and is at least no longer broken and we no longer get FTBFS reports
from people rebuilding the archive ;-).

As I mentioned earlier I will probably be closer to some rock then a
computer until the 7th of Jan.  Have a good christmas/holiday if you
do celebrate so and/or have any.
