For a package to go into sarge it has to have less RC bugs than the
current version in sarge and have been in sid for a certain amount of
days depending on its severity of upload (time to see if new RC bugs
crop up). Rebuilding the version for upload to sarge against sarge
would be a hassle and possibly not work, also it could possibly
introduce new bugs that weren't seen in the sid version, since it would
be built against different versions of libraries. If the bugs in libc6
could get resolved the issue would just go away though.
