I'm certain that -5 will break in unstable/testing.  -4 includes new
patches and build-deps that require the versions of jnr-constants and
jnr-posix that will be in the archive soon (jnr-posix is still in NEW).

We were anticipating the break in unstable, but it is my mistake that
the jython package migrated to tested prior to its dependencies.  I was
focused on the build-deps, but neglected to verify that these would
translate into the desired binary package dependencies.  Once the newer
versions of the dependencies hit the archive, the situation will be
reversed and you will be required install the newer jython.

I am going to upload -6.  Do people think it's worth it to try to get -5
removed from the archive?

Thank you,
tony
