[Zope-dev] ZODB3 split up and packaging question

Since version  3.11, ZODB3 now  depends on persistent, BTrees,  ZODB and
ZEO.   In  Debian,  there  is   currently  ZODB3  3.9.7  package,  named
python-zodb.   However,   python-persistent  4.0.8  has   recently  been
uploaded and  of course  its contents  conflicts with  python-zodb 3.9.7
(which also ships "persistent" module).

One solution which  has been suggested is to  remove "persistent" module
from   python-zodb   and   make   python-zodb   (3.9.7)   depends   upon
python-persistent (4.0.8) instead.  After running (legacy) Unit Tests of
python-zodb "persistent"  with python-persistent installed  and checking
the changes  between these versions,  I don't  think there would  be any
issue, could anyone confirm?

Thank you very much in advance!
