Oh, hm.  I should have read through this before I, er, did an imprudent
upload of 195.36.31-7 to unstable.  I did read this message a couple of
times before uploading, but for some reason didn't internalize what it
meant.  Sorry about that.  :/

The proposed naming scheme was supposed to be to add +deb60+1 to the
version number, although that's just as complicated.  Does anything break
with a +squeeze1 version number, or does it just look really ugly?
