yes -- but that would happen only IF the bug is really serious
(security, policy, etc); the last changelog entry is dated Mon, 09 Jun
2008, and I don't see any security bug closed in the last year. So, what
is the probability to get a need for a fix for something very
intrusively, so that lots of testing (ie presence in unstable) is

I am just sharing my opinion (it is worthless to keep Debian users of
unstable away from fresh releases ATM); I fully appreciate maintainer
decision to ship fresh version into experimental ;)
