reassign 533428 calibre

This is a problem with calibre; sip doesn't promise stable APIs at the
moment, so calibre must be re-uploaded for each sip4/python-qt4
upload; this is a problem with any python module that also includes C
code (as there are no sonames to break libraries). There is a plan to
implement a dh_sip (or a more generic solution) to permamently resolve
this issue, but at this time, this package requires an NMU. In
addition, I spoke with Martin Pitt who was unable to reproduce the
issue; its possible the maintainer binary was built in an out-of-date
chroot that caused this issue.
