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

I'd write something like '...by allowing the kernel modules in the
open-vm-tools-dkms package to build against both older ...'

and newer Wheezy kernels.

People who are not using the -dkms package don't need to update,
it might make sense to let them know.

Thanks a lot,
