Packages can be prepared in the meantime for experimental. As said, new
upstream versions are discouraged in sid because they requires a t-p-u
upload for etch-related versions and the use of a sane chroot for building
if changes were done on relevant packages. I think this is a good period
to prepare new experimental version for future use...
