The only sane way to get 2.2.0-5 back into testing now would be with an
epoched upload to unstable.  I'd still be happy to let it into sarge if you
wanted to do this, as I agree with those who say it's an important piece of
software; even so, bringing the package back any other way than through
unstable just has too much risk.
