I was waiting until iso-codes-0.44-1 was safely in testing / RC3 (I'm
not sure how to tell: watching for the 0.41 udeb to drop out of the
archive) before uploading  0.45 that fixes the RC bug. Is it Ok
to upload now, or would you prefer not?

Its up to you; the fix is in CVS and straightforward, the problem is
'technically' RC Critical, but the only program it broke has been fixed
by other means: it now uses the XML instead.
