Yeah, I saw them, but didn't try them yet. My main concern however is
not about getting 2.0.6 Debian packages for myself, but to get them in
the Debian repository.

I would love to see a set of regularily updated unstable packages -
they wouldn't need to be as fancy and fine-grained as the stable
Debian packages, but rather something that would have less of a chance
of requiring changes when the unstable tree gets new features.

Oh, thanks! Hadn't even noticed that we had a Wiki yet, let alone one
that contained something useful ;-)
