Use protobuf 2.5.0 #1071
The version of libprotobuf we use (implicitly at least) is 2.4.1 because that's what's in the ubuntu repositories. We should look into upgrading to 2.5.0. It contains some speed upgrades and interface changes I'd like to take advantage of.

We would have to link to it statically when building the ubuntu packages, which is easy to do but is annoying for users.
How much work would it take to adapt the rethinkdb server to the interface changes?
