Thinkfinger upstremam and me was been talking about big changes on
thinfinger pam module, so I think It will be better to upload now to
experimental, and if the changes aren't done in pam module, then upload
to unstable.

At this moment we have an svn. I recommend you to use svn-inject
(svn-buildpackage package) to upload it.
