It looks like Debian still has zodb 3.9.7, right?

IIRC, I needed to update python-persistent for the Python 3 zope.component
transition, as it's a build-dep.  There are no other reverse dependencies that
I know of.

I think a Conflicts is the right way to handle this for now, given where we
are in the Jessie release cycle.  Arnaud, thanks for handling this!
