It seems we should be using the codename there ("wheezy") and not the
archive name ("oldstable") as the latter has the risk of doing
unexpected major updates, although I suspect u-u may have built-in
protections against this.

Therefore when we fix this, we should use codename, if that's supported
in wheezy. There were issues with codename matching, however (#704087)
which may make that impossible, so we may be forced to do the
"oldoldstable" trick...

I have tried it and unfortunately it does not work. We apparently need the
oldoldstable trick...

so, can we expect updated package to appear in wheezy soon?
should I bug someone or is anyone taking a look at it?
