By the way, one question regarding luatex:  There's currently a package
luatex-snapshot in Debian unstable, for the bold and brave to test.  The
name makes clear that it isn't a released version.

We were wondering whether we should allow it to enter testing and,
finally, the next Debian release which is planned "less than 2 years
after April 2007".  In other words, it might be late enough to contain
the first release of luatex, but it's equally likely that we would have
to freeze at a snapshot somewhat before that.

What's your opinion about that?
