Uploaded, thanks! I'll make a note to myself to update the package in
jessie-backports as well. Luca, let me know if you need a sponsor for
the wheezy-pu/jessie-pu or wheezy-security/jessie-security uploads (I
don't know if these CVEs warrant a DSA, so ping the security team
first with a source debdiff and see what they say, and if they say no
then ping the release team instead); thanks for taking care of updates
for stable/oldstable/oldoldstable!
