Ah, sorry, then I misread it. I thought he just hadn't updated some
libraries which are still on versions in squeeze.

Indeed. And:

| Debian Release: wheezy/sid
| APT prefers stable
| APT policy: (900, 'stable'), (500, 'testing'), (410, 'unstable'), (200, 'experimental'), (111, 'oldstable')

Retitling accordingly, again...

But then again, this would be an issue of an actual backport (if
anyone wants to do that) and that's not really supported the BTS (yet).

So I'd even downgrade it to wishlist.
