[Python-modules-team] Bug#762692: python-pyqt5: Package depends on obsolete qtbase-abi-5-3-1, so it can no longer be installed

Package: python-pyqt5
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

The virtual package qtbase-abi-5-3-1 used to be provided by 
the libqt5core5a package (built from the qtbase-opensource-src source),
but starting of 5.3.2+dfsg-1 of said source (released on 16 Sep 2014),
the qt-base abi has been bumpedto 5-3-2, so it no longer provides this
virtual package.

However, python-pyqt5 (and some other similar packages) still depend
on qtbase-abi-5-3-1, so they are not uninstallable.

This breaks calibre, among other things.
