Thanks for the update. Indeed NEW is not too fast -- I myself
waiting on my new package to pass through ;)

I hope that there would be no major licensing issues... May be it is
worth to pursue unstable right away? who needs prev version could get it
from lenny ;)

few brief issues I ran into

* trying to run examples (from /usr/share/doc/mayavi2/examples/mayavi)

** $> python offscreen.py 
Failed to initialize TTM buffer manager.  Falling back to classic.
ERROR: In /build/buildd/vtk-5.0.4/IO/vtkPNGWriter.cxx, line 220
vtkPNGWriter (0x67d0db0): Unable to open file offscreen.png

ERROR: In /build/buildd/vtk-5.0.4/IO/vtkImageWriter.cxx, line 506
vtkPNGWriter (0x67d0db0): Ran out of disk space; deleting file(s) already written

$> dpkg -S offscreen.png
dpkg: *offscreen.png* not found.

** was 'explore' function removed from interactive shell within mayavi2?

** Also I am observing major rendering bug (or some feature? :-)), which
I am not sure I experienced with sid version that badly... screenshot of
running contour.py http://www.onerussian.com/tmp/mayavi2-zorder.png
Similar incorrect renders happen in other scripts (numeric_source.py).

I guess I would need to test on some other box to check if that is not a card
specific issue.

Sorry for just a sketchy look...
