I agree, but we cannot really do very much unless upstream actually 
releases the versions into which directfb was merged and those versions 
are packaged for Debian. Alternatives have been discussed several times 
already.

I'd hope we can use the main gtk debian package. I have no idea if the 
Gnome packagers are ready or not or if they are even considering 
packaging 2.10 for Etch given the release planning and the upcoming 
freeze. Especially since AFAICT 2.10 has not yet been released...
