Ok just two stupid questions:
could we tag something like another version? You install this deb file and the version will be 7.1.0, users could misunderstand this...

Second, how do you feel about putting a version with localization issues fixed?
I'm working on a fix for the dlgoptions crash, and I'll issue the localization problem (I think just by defining HAVE_XLOCALE_H in configure file)

Just my 0.02 $

>>Your package contains new components which requires manual editing of 
the override file.  It is ok otherwise, so please be patient.  New 
packages are usually added to the override file about once a week.
