 So wouldn't that mean that it should get pulled from wheezy too, if the
version there makes you feel so uneasy about it?

 The rules are no secret, and these sentiments are bound to happen
at/after every release.  I really would like to have package not
uploaded in the first place if there start to come in requests for
removal as soon as we are getting closer to the next release, or have at
least a reason to believe that this won't happen again when we enter the
next freeze for jessie.

 Alright, and as I've been noticed, lintian does too.

 Well, the version in squeeze-backports should get updated to the
version from wheezy if that makes sense, or stay at its version if
that's the better option.

 Unfortunately I can't offer you the sloppy suite no matter how much I'd
like to do that, and my efforts to help out to get it into shape went to
/dev/null (or received snide swear comments).
