 I know, should have contacted the PostgreSQL team already.

 This should be done as it may break other packages as well. Maybe
those are not yet uncovered.

 If you know any other way, please let me know.

 This mean I'll have to do a libdbi-drivers upload for every
PostgreSQL version change - just changing -9.6 to -9.7 and so on. This
package is not specific to any PSQL release and should be totally
unrelated to its current version number.

 Can be, but the worst solution as you can see above. Let me ask what
the PostgreSQL maintainers say.
