I currently have testing and unstable in my package source lists, and
I'm fairly sure that most of my packages are updated to those
releases.  But as a relative Linux (and Debian) newbie, I can't
guarantee that all of the packages that a regular user would expect to
see in a standard system are installed.  (For instance I didn't have
the libstdc++ installed when I first attempted to run the epkowa
backend.)  But the libesint23.so doesn't even mention libstdc++ in its
dependencies, so installing the latter library wouldn't (and didn't)

Right.  I guess I can't do that with this backend.

That shouldn't matter too much as far as library dependencies go,
I wouldn't have thought...

Okay, bug report sent.  I haven't specifically asked for Debian support yet.
