Ah, sorry. bigfoot is running unstable, actually. Some of my other
machines run testing, but I've got the unstable package repository in my
sources.list (and Default-Release "testing"; in /etc/apt/apt.conf, so
unstable doesn't get used by default, but I can install packages from it.
see apt-preferences(8). I just found this feature in apt a couple weeks
ago, and I love it. :)
I've got apt version 0.5.3 on my system running woody/testing. Even if you
leave the rest of the system at potato, you might want to update to a new apt.

packages.debian.org has a search that lets you easily search for stuff that
isn't immediately available for install on the machine you're using.
