Backporting unstable i386 into testing i386 is not that much of work
when you have all dependancies ported already as well in one or another
way. Porting into another arch might be more challenging.. I just
checked diff* files from arnd and bart's apt sources, there are some
quite big diffs and they differ significantly seems to me from one
version of maintrunk debian package to another. So it is a bit different
and might not be that straightforward. And in the end we might end up
with same situation as it is now I think
