OpenCV 2.3 transition?

I'd like to evaluate the possibility of updating OpenCV from 2.1 to 2.3 in

2.3 is in Debian unstable but it requires a rebuild of all the packages that
depend on it.

Debian resources about the transition:

I found ~20 source packages in Ubuntu that depend on one of the binary packages
produced by opencv. I'm going to test build all of them (either the version
already in Ubuntu or a more recent one from Debian if necessary) in a PPA I set
up for this:

Given the number of failures and how much work it requires to fix them, we'll be
able to decide whether we can manage that in less than a month, before FF.

Please tell me if you see any problem with this.
