exception for unionfs-fuse, please

Dear Release-Team,

I would like to ask for an exception of my package unionfs-fuse. A new version 
has been release yesterday, which fixes one critical bug (I discovered myself 
on Thursday). The bug is a deadlock happening on unions of /etc and /var, 
when any syslog() call is made by unionfs-fuse. Since it is not simple to fix 
this, all syslog() calls have been disabled for now.
The other (rather largish) change/bug-fix to the existing package in 
testing/unstable is to allow read-only branches on top of read-write 

I didn't fill in a Debian bug report, since I'm the maintainer and also one of 
the upstream authors.

I already uploaded a 0.20-5 version to mentors yesterday noon and the final 
release 0.21-1 yesterday evening to mentors.debian.org. A kind mentor then 
today uploaded the package, unfortunately about 2.5 hours after your "freeze" 

unionfs-fuse (0.21-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * new upstream release

I would be glad if you could make an exception for my package.
