Stable: 5.0.375.86
Beta: 5.0.375.86
Dev: 6.0.437.3

For some reason, I thought the stable channel was still in v4.

Well, when you put it that way. :) Honestly, I don't think of Sid as a
collection of stable packages. That's what I think about Lenny. I think
of Sid as "the latest and greatest", regardless of version, and that's
why I thought the nightlies would be appropriate here.

In my mind's eye, I played out that Sid would get the nightlies and
Squeeze would get the beta pushes. But, following the stable channel
makes sense. I was just curious.
