Okay, 0.53 is in testing now (maybe a day or two ago).  But again, with
the new initramfs-tools unpacked (but not configured):

Setting up udev (0.085-1) ...
Kernel version too old.  initramfs-tools requires at least 2.6.12.
dpkg: error processing udev (--configure):
 subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of initramfs-tools:
 initramfs-tools depends on udev (>= 0.076-5); however:
  Package udev is not configured yet.

I don't know whether this will prevent an upgrade from sarge, but it
does stop an upgrade from old etch to new etch.
