Yeah, this is truly a pity.  Since all maintainers are unpaid
volunteers who most probably have a life and a profession besides
Debian it is not very likely that this distribution is kept up to
date. I've complaned about this myself before and have therefore opted
for the creation of a bo-addons or bo-unstable directory (call it
whatever you like) to enable uploads of libc5 compiled versions of
hamm packages. I've become a maintainer since a while and would like
to start uploading my libc5 packages. Any news about it?
