[Debian-med-packaging] Bug#611008: does not run with current version of R in squeeze

Hi release heros,

while the bug would be fixed in unstable after a simple rebuild it
concerns the Squeeze release.  I prepared a fixed version of the package
(see debdiff).

Notes to the debdiff besides fixing (rebuilding against the R version in

 - Updated Standards-Version to keep lintian silent (should not break
   anything because no changes were needed)
 - Added watch file (should not break anything)
 - Added upstream-metadata.yaml to the source (should not break anything
   but helps in maintaining references in Debian Med and Debian Science

 + if you agree I would be in big favour of bumping debhelper compat to
   7 but I hesitated to put it into the changelog without your confirmation

Please tell me whether I should upload to testing-proposed-updates (with
or without the debhelper bump).

Kind regards and thanks for your work as release team
