Mmm, actually even Etch currently has quilt-0.45-6 :) That's mainly the reason why lots of packages outside the Perl Group have dropped their (>= 0.40-1) in the past year or three. It's only Sarge and earlier that don't have 0.40 - Sarge has 0.39, I believe. The only reason I'm keeping (>= 0.40-1) in the control file of my personal etch-backports is to keep Etch's Lintian happy - the oldish version there still complains about a missing dependency, supposedly because Sarge was stable back then and lintian wanted to help backports :) So basically, even etch-backports don't really need this dependency unless you want to avoid a lintian warning.
