I will put the source packages as usual on people.

Well, then we have a problem, because now with the move to libpoppler
backporting to etch is not anymore trivial, changing patches etc.

I guess at the end all of the stuff will end up on people, backports (if
I manage it) for etch, and unstable packages fo rthe rest of the world.

But this needs time ... I spent a WHOLE day fixing packaging stuff
(libkpathseas stuff is now build from the texlive packages, plus the
move to poppler 0.5 something), now my head is banging ...

Best wishes
