How about adding a warning to the module that it is experimental? I'd
like to avoid rolling back stuff we already have in newer. Otherwise,
we could upload a 0.8.8 with a disabled module as well, but that might
create problems later on with merging Ubuntu packages that depend on
python-apt (>= 0.8.5) and expect apt.auth to be there.

We could also create a 0.8.4.1 release for testing, by branching off
unstable's 0.8.7, merging the changelog entries for 0.8.5, 0.8.6,
and 0.8.7 into 0.8.4.1, and removing apt.auth mentions, and disabling
or removing that module. But that is a bit more work. We could also
name 0.8.4.1 as 0.8.4+wheezy1, but given that unstable is past 0.8.4
already, just using 0.8.4.X instead of 0.8.4+wheezyX seems a bit
nicer.
