The problem with shipping couchdb 1.0 as a separate binary package (or
set thereof), means that it's no longer a simple SRU to 10.04. We would
also need to provide an SRU for desktopcouch on 10.04. As well as an SRU
for couchdb on 10.10 (which already ships 1.0, and would need to
reconcile the split on upgrade), and get the same dependency changes for
10.10 into 11.04.

There are also other security fixes included in the set of changes from
0.10 to 1.0, which means anyone actually using 0.10 is probably going to
have to update anyway.
