What I uploaded into unstable *was* built with a stable chroot, but
sure, I can re-upload it with the appropriate version number and
I assume it should be dupload'ed to the proposed-updates queue,

Understood. OK, I'm flying back from Portland (Usenix ATC) to Boston
tomorrow morning, so I'll prepare the packages while I'm in the air.
I may not have a chance to upload them until late Saturday night or
Sunday mid-day, although I will try to do it sooner if I can. (I just
want to make some allowances for Murphy's law while I'm in transit...)
I hope that will be enough time?
