Yes, and obviously the packages in testing at the moment don't work, due to
the Gnome 3 that is now in testing.

I haven't tried it yet. I was hoping to jump straight to the latest at-spi 2,
since the version currently in experimental is very out of date.
You'll find that Luke has been working on at-spi packages and that his changes
for Ubuntu are in a Git branch, which also includes recent upstream code.
If you're trying to create Debian packages, perhaps start by merging those
Ubuntu changes into a local branch, make appropriate changes (e.g., to the
pakcage names) and see if you can get working binary packages.
Somebody else may well have progressed further than we have; I don't want to
duplicate the efforts of others or to get in the way.
