Absolutely, yes.

Actually, our debian package already handles such upgrades. It simply
started off of a false premise, that is having db version 11 in lenny.
I'm still thinking about this but, if I'm not mistaken, the lenny
version just needs to run the upgrade script for 10->11 additionally to
the already set script for 11->12. And if that's so, it's basicall
uncommenting a line in debian/rules.

But I still need to check that. I'm still working on a version for sid.
