Duly noted, I'll hold off on uploading anything aside from potentially
new 340.xx releases to sid for n-g-d.

Graham, if you're still looking for a sponsor for nvidia-cuda-toolkit
to upload 6.5 to sid (I suppose the only reason you haven't done so
yet even though you're a DM is because the upload has to go through
NEW?), I can probably help with that next month when I'll be able to
leech off my local university's fast and not-bandwidth-capped network
for the actual upload, heh.
