Well, if you add copyright etc in 0.1.1 then that will fix the
bug. Which means 0.1, 0.2, ... are buggy but 0.1.1 will be fixed. Thanks
to version tracking in the BTS there should be no confusion. The version
in squeeze/sid will be bug free but experimental will be buggy. A new
experimental upload of 0.3 would fix that seperately.
