But lenny isn't broken since current lenny version of e2fsprogs is
still using 128 bytes as inode size.

otavio@merkel:~$ dak ls e2fsprogs|grep testing
 e2fsprogs | 1.40.2-1+lenny1 | testing-proposed-updates | source, alpha, amd64, arm, hppa, i386, ia64, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390, sparc
 e2fsprogs |   1.40.3-1 |       testing | source, alpha, amd64, arm, hppa, i386, ia64, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390, sparc

So weekly builds can still be build without problems.

But I agree that it could be hinted for fast migration. This helps to
get widly testing of it before we are too near of releasing.
