Being hopeful as a maintainer doesn't help a user. And backports for people
who rely on certain software functionality occur on many places, so I
personally consider the samba 3 snapshot a mistake. Providing snapshots is a
good idea if you want to help stabilize the software, not forcing people to
use them (which you do if people upgrade to unstable)
