For proj4.5 it's definitively too late, that would causes to much impact
on a good deal of programs to consider it for etch. 

Mapserver 4.10 is already in sid since 12 days, but currently blocked by php5 and 
geos which is only 7 days old. I'm quite confident it will enter testing in time
if all required archs will build in time php5 (and I'm sure they will :)).
The same for postgis.

For grass we could try that, soon. But number of dependecies and build times are 
quite sufficient to worry me...

I would instead fix gdal python
binding and a decent qgis package is required. I also would suggest in
its doc that the etch package is EXPERIMENTAL...
