I've built a new revision that contains patches to introduce the
master-filter from 1.1.1 and the relevant *.fpi files that it uses, I'm just
yet to test and upload it. If there's any interested parties I'll make the
new package available somewhere. It's hard for me to test at home because I
don't have a printer, and I'm taking this week off work to go to LCA, but
I'm mindfull of the current breakage in sarge and want to resolve it
