For users running unstable, this isn't much a problem (for something
that isn't a library): the dependencies are often already in unstable,
installing such a package won't probably trash the system, and it is
easy to downgrade to unstable. However, IIRC, not all architectures
are supported, and my machine here is PowerPC-based.
