What are the chances of a mechanical search&replace working? I know bugger all about .deb files, so it would be a leap of faith to
imagine that I could do anything with the changed files anyway. There's the
"twat it with a hammer" technique of simply running the scripts that look
like they've got a sensible name, I guess, but that sounds too much like
mucking around under the hood to me.

It would probably work, but there are always "issues" with such upgrades.

I'll go ahead and take care of it this afternoon (and close bug 159536), you'll have to get the unstable package but it should work.

Are there any others that are out of date?
