The version number he gave was 0.59q-2 (in testing) where he's quite
correct. I'd reopen this and tag it woody, but since it's not
release-critical it probably doesn't matter too much.

In order to sync in testing, mpg123 needs (a) a recent build on arm and
(b) a bug on ftp.debian.org to get the old mpg123-alsa binary on i386
removed. I'll do (b) in a moment.

Huh? I should certainly hope not. The /usr/man to /usr/share/man
transition doesn't need the same hacks as /usr/doc to /usr/share/doc
did, which is part of why it isn't as critical.
