Many thanks for your work. The upstream patch is horrible, but let's hope 
we'll drop it with next release...

It is commited to the svn, you can test the package generated from there, 
though I'm sure it's working.

I'll upload 8-7-2 to unstable in the next few days I think.

Everyday is just a holiday, 
I don't care what the crowd may say. 
I live the life I love with you, 
Having fun while they are feeling blue.
