Please upload to unstable. As the current version in unstable doesn't even
build, it will be better that what is there now. And if we end up removing it,
a new version in unstable won't hurt.

Note that I'm not tagging this request 'confirmed', becuase I haven't looked
at the details to see if an unblock would be appropriate. That can happen
