I don't think this is going to happen. Packaging Mate is very tedious
and time-consuming and can't just happen over night. There isn't really
any value in spending so much time and effort into packaging a
development release.

We might upload some individual packages from 1.9.x to experimental
though in case there are some notable exceptions where an update
to a development version makes sense. Otherwise, I don't think
this is going to fly.
