 It's not particularly an easy fix.  What this requires is either
 preparing a new set of elisa uploads, or backporting the fix; I don't
 have the time to do either, preparing uploads of new elisa releases
 currently takes me a painful amount of time to check for updates in
 python imports.

 Now, I should put a Conflicts or Breaks in place to prevent people from
 mixing incompatible versions, but that wont help you run elisa 0.5.

 The reason I've pushed the new pigment is that I new it would require
 going through NEW, and so wanted to get it in experimental ASAP.  If
 you need the old pigment binaries which work with experimental's elisa,
 you can check http://people.dooz.org/~lool/debian/pigment/ and

 BTW, I'd love to get some help reviewing new elisa updates, and
 packaging elisa in general; if you're a DD and you're reading this, I'm
 happy to discuss co-maintenance with you.
