Just tried it, looks good to me.

Shall we push it up to experimental? Seeing how long it's taking for
355.11-3 to get through the NEW queue, I'm beginning to be quite worried
that if we wait for 355.11-3 to be accepted first and then have to wait
another 6 months to get the new binary packages in 361 approved
separately we might miss the Stretch deadline...

Pushed a couple patches for 361, 364 and 367 (will have to merged up).
304, 340 and 352 are OK as they are.

Kind regards,
