backporting sks 1.1.3 to squeeze

hi backports folks and Christoph (the sks maintainer)--

The main keyserver pool maintainer (Kristian Fiskerstrand) is pushing
for a minimum version of sks 1.1.2 to remain in the pool by 2012-07-07:


Since debian squeeze only supplies 1.1.1, people running stable won't be
able to contribute their service to the pool.

I propose to backport sks 1.1.3-1 (currently 4 days old in unstable),
and upload it to squeeze-backports once it hits testing (in about a
week, hopefully).  This should allow keyserver operators running sks on
debian stable to remain in the pool by enabling the squeeze-backports
repo and pulling sks from it.

I'm trying out the upgrade now (debdiff attached here) on a
well-connected keyserver (zimmermann.mayfirst.org, currently offline for
the upgrade).  The bdb copy+upgrade step during postinst is long and
slow for a fully-populated server, but that may just be the necessary
price to pay.

Please let me know if anyone has any objections to this backport.  If
the upgrade of zimmermann goes well, and sks 1.1.3 makes it into
testing, and i haven't heard any complaints, I'll go ahead and upload
the backport.
