Well, for binary packages, there's the "non-free" archive, which isn't
really considered part of Debian.  DFSG #2 requires source code, and
there are other practical reasons (i.e. security patches).

In the worst case, we could package up the patched dependencies under
a different name.  To deal with the rapid pace of upstream
development, there is always the option of not uploading every point
release.  Obviously these are not ideal solutions, but we should be
able to get something together and on the mirrors.
