Debian sweetness: safe libimlib2

For the last few days, I've been wanting to install pypanel, but
I didn't want to install a vulnerable version of the library onto my Ubuntu Hardy system because of CVE-2008-2426 ¹.

This bug has been fixed upstream, but the fix hasn't made it into Hardy yet; however, I booted back into Debian, updated "aptitude," and what did I find?

I found that this bug has been fixed in the "antiquated" version of libimlib2 ( in Etch, so I now have pypanel installed without fear. Ubuntu will evidently have to wait.

I just want to say again, you people at Debian are doing a good job. Thanks.
