We plan to upload it right after the release of etch.

This version works on all architectures, but m68k, hurd and hppa which
don't have TLS support.

For hppa the work is almost done, I am currently building the packages
(but on a slow machine) to test them.

For m68k and hurd, I have sent a mail to the porters a few months ago, I
haven't received any answer. Maybe we should have to drop those
architectures, at least temporarily.
