No, I have no master-sid branch at all. Just debian-sid / upstream-sid.

You don't need squeeze branches at all, the package isn't in there (and
it will never be there...). Just debian-sid / upstream-sid for now. When
it migrates to wheezy, you can create 2 branches for it.

I'm not good with perl either. I think it's gona be fine with your
overrides then.

Should I try any of the packages again now? Should I pull from Alioth?
