	I am expecting to upload 5.5.23-1 tomorrow morning. After that I am 
really keen to get 5.5 into unstable for various reasons.

1.) Once we have done that there is nothing to stop us mass filing bugs 
against reverse dependencies.
2.) when that has been done a more serious momentum might develop.
3.) I would rather play with #590905 from the safety of experimental - 
at least at first.
4.) You'll then have less excuse to apply whatever stuff is unique to 
Ubuntu in Debian.
