It works.

And 4.4.5 must stay in unstable until squeeze is released. So "boring" freeze period + starvation of new upstream versions for more complicated software are ahead for sid users (like during any freeze). Only experimental is fully open to new software. -- Modestas Vainius <email@example.com>
