On a related note, I've added the xapian backports ppa (maintained by
xapian upstream) to start testing against Xapian 1.4 by default. There
is some rough plan to remove support for pre-1.4 Xapian, so this is a
step in that direction. So far I didn't see an easy way to do something
similar to update the tested version of GMime
