CVS is stable. Frankly, the release is pretty much a CVS snapshot. 1.2.0
will be released around the end of April, so it will probably happen way
before sarge is out. I think that the effort is better spent working out
problems due to the clash of debian and upstream policy on executable
libs and non-FHS file placement then on maintaining two separate
versions. Please tell my why it is not so if you think contrary.
