[openstack-dev] Dependency freeze exception for happybase (I would like version 0.8)

Writing this mail after TTX suggested it in the patch review.
After talking with some Ceilometer people, it appeared that the cap on
happybase (eg: <0.6) was done because of a bug upstream. This bug was,
apparently, fixed in version 0.8.
In Debian, we have already version 0.7 in Sid/Testing, and I uploaded
version 0.8 in Experimental. It would be complicated and not desirable
to revert to an earlier version, and I don't think I'd do that.
For this reason, I would like to ask for a freeze exception and allow
Happy base 0.8 to get in. There's 2 ways to do that:
In this patch, I did the former:
however, I'd be ok to use the later.
I'd like to ask everyone's opinion here. Is it ok to do a freeze
exception in this case? If yes (please, everyone, agree! :) ), then
would >=0.8 or >=0.4,!=0.6,!=0.7 be better?
