Since the maintainer wanted to keep maintainership and also willing to
upgrade to newer version when next Slackware release has the required
dependencies, let's just keep a single version of calibre in SBo.

Although it's possible to have both of them in the repository, it
would be problematic when someday in the future the original
maintainer want to upgrade to the new version that uses Qt5 and by
then we will have a duplicate version.

Besides, the old 1.48 still work

just my thought
