??? Users of __stable__ won't ever get that piece of software, no
matter if it goes into unstable, testing, or any other distribution
you might make up.
Please, do acknowledge that having a debian directory in upstream does
make sense for a lot of different motives. Maybe it does not make
sense to distribute it with a release, but putting it in a branch, as
you said, is too much extra work for upstream. If he wants to have a
debian directory, it's his right as upstream to have it. Although it
is a good idea to discourage distributing it.
