Really sorry about  that. FTR, I have not uploaded  anything yet because
the release  team would prefer  to avoid  the Conflicts if  possible and
make python-zodb depends upon  python-persistent instead. AFAIK, it does
not seem to be an issue but I have just sent an email to upstream author
to confirm it's not going to be an issue...
