There were two reasons for putting this in unstable.

First: this is not the release version, and we are not going to ship hamm
with a prelease (see appropriate bug report) version of glibc.

Second: this was supposidly the last pre-release before the final version,
and I wanted it to get some testing.

I will be coming out with a "final" Debian version in the next week or
two, depending on how much Ulrich stonewalls the upstream release.

Waiting is,
