Not unless Sarge takes forever to get released. It would be bad for pure64
with a lot of bugs to make it into a stable release that is supposed to be
solid for a couple years. _years_. Think about it.

Because they also end up with a dep on libgcc1 >= 1:3.4-0. There are some
packages in pure64 sid that are like that, and the dep isn't satisfiable
because gcc 3.4 isn't in sid. :(
I don't know which repository my system got libgmp3 4.1.2-4.1 from, but it
has that problem, along with fakeroot 0.9.5.
