Because it is a new package, it will have to wait some few weeks before
users can get a hand on it. And last time i uploaded, it was broken,
since i don't have pmac hardware, i can't really test it, so i want at
least one sucessfull use report before i do the upload. It should be ok
though ... No, it is assuredly broken now that i think of it, since i
forgot to force make-kpkg to think it's a pmac :((((
