I agree with Simo. My last year attempts to move to dblatex failed but
there might be progress already since that.

If this change is going to be introduced, please check that it builds
at least on platforms that OpenSUSE's build farm supports. It is quite
good coverage of target Linux platforms, at the very least. I hope
Lars could help to verify it on existing buildfarm setup.
