The description can include a warning about it not being tested as well
as the 2.0.35 version, and why you might want to install it anyway.

If 2.0.36 goes in, I'd have to at least upload an isdnutils that is
identical to the current slink one, but which conflicts with kernel
2.0.36, as that is simply not compatible.  This might be a good idea
anyway, to prevent problems when people upgrade to a new kernel
without upgrading the rest...  Would this be sufficient reason to
allow an upgrade (of the current slink version)?
