The problem is the definition of "enough time"; I have enough time to
upload dpkg with the change to add the new symbol to the comparison

Does mdz have enough time to do the same for APT?

What about all of the other various tools that parse deb filenames,
compare versions, etc.  Do we have enough time to track all of those
down and update them too?

I'm somewhat optimistic that sarge will enter full-freeze RSN (there's a
BSP this weekend) and release in January.

I don't think that's enough time.

Have you ever, ever felt like this?
Had strange things happen?  Are you going round the twist?
