    I see. Well, the difference is always even (except for the first
one), so with storing half of the difference, the limit could be raised
to 512. But I suppose the dev version took a better approach.

I really should do that. Is there a Debian binary package somewhere? Or
a diff.gz file that could help me build my own one from the source?

    Other packages have different versions as Debian packages, too, e.g.
gimp-1.2 vs. gimp-2.0 or mozilla vs. mozilla-snapshot. Wouldn't it be
possible to have both version in Debian unstable?
