gxine? Possibility of 0.4.4 in sarge? There are bugs other than the RC bug
(in the Debian BTS) which really should be fixed in unstable, preferably
(IMO) by uploading 0.4.4 - I suggest that you use the packaging in
<URL:http://zap.tartarus.org/~ds/debian/> as a starting point.
Any changes which you don't think should go into sarge - tell me and I'll
(probably) tell you why it should :-)
(It's probably still safe to assume that the maintainer doesn't have enough
time to prepare and upload the package.)
