advice for syncevolution in squeeze



I need some advice for how to proceed for syncevolution.  Around the
time of the freeze, I asked on the upstream list for any serious issues
with the debian packages, and not receiving any reports, decided to
stick with the version in squeeze. However, upstream has since brought
to my attention
(http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=582376#31) that
several fairly severe upstream have been fixed in more recent versions.
I have looked at the first 3 or 4, and they do involve data loss.

To complicate things further, in the mean time we have made a split into
5 binary packages from 2 (one of the 5 being debugging symbols).

Would either of the following be acceptable for a freeze exception:

1) A new upstream release with the new packaging?

2) A new upstream release (1.0.99.7) with the old packaging?  

   Some of the current packaging would have to be backported in any case
   to keep up with changing build-deps, but obviously I could try to
   minimize the packaging changes.

I suppose the diff between upstream versions is pretty enormous, but
there are a lot of bugs fixed.

P.S. I can hear Julien sighing already :)
