I think there was a small thinko here (not that it'll change your
mind, that's ok, so just noting it): the issue is that packages
accepted by the SRMs are not available for users _in a location that
is safe for them to put in their sources.list_, which s-p-u is not
(since it can contain !accepted-by-SRM packages). So they have to wait
until the next point release is actually released.
Nice to hear that there are planes to make s-p-u such location,
