Despite what I wrote above, I note that package "kde5libs-dev" currently 
contains (on sid) "kde4libs (4:4.14.14-1)".  I admit this numbering scheme 
confuses me, but it seems that mainstream KDE is really using KDE 4.  (?)

Anyway, despite Eric V's advice to jump to digikam 5, I went ahead and did a 
local rebuild of digikam 4.14 and it seems to run fine.  

Question for the Debian-Qt-Kde folks: do you agree with upgrading to digikam 
4.14?  If so, what is the best way to get updated digikam in archive?   I have 
just sent a request to join the Alioth project.   If accepted, should I go 
ahead and update that?
