Well it's not really any extra work for you. ;-)

I'll try and sort this out over the next couple of days, but in the
meantime how does this sound? (Comments from others welcome too.)

The open-vm-tools package contains tools for working with VMWare
systems, including the ability to build some related kernel modules
on-demand ("DKMS").

The version of open-vm-tools in Wheezy is no longer compatible with the
kernel currently shipped in Wheezy. This update resolves the
incompatibility by allowing open-vm-tools to build against both older
and newer Wheezy kernels.
