Ok.  I wasn't complaining, just wondering how you guys were handling
this.  Maybe it's just me who needs the upgrade, because of our
monstrous C++ package.  If I'd build deb packages myself, would
anyone be interested?

I haven't tried upgrading, for debugging embedded libguile stuff in
LilyPond it is pretty useless; it takes forever (10s or so) to display
a SCM in gdb, it sometimes even dumps core.
