[Ubuntu] Change of libgdal1 to libgdal1h - dependency problems

This change is very confusing and it would be nice if it would be announced
beforehand and somewhere documented.
Right now it just breaks a lot of things. I think many people used
"ubuntugis-unstable" PPA because the "stable" PPA was not really offering
recent package versions in the past such as PostGIS 2.0.

I'm speaking from the pgRouting perspective and I have difficulties now to
build packages for different Ubuntu releases.
Actually I just tried to see what happens when I update to libgdal1h using
Ubuntu 12.10:

   - First the upgrade removed QGIS and Mapserver (little surprise) and a
   bunch of other packages
   - Then I was looking for postgresql-9.1-postgis-2.0 ... but another
   surprise. There was no new package for Precise

Is the Precise package just missing and will be added soon? Or will be
packages for 12.10 not updated anymore?
Then I'm wondering why libgdal1h was published for 12.10 but other software
was not updated.
