The fact is that you never know with the debian packagers. I'm
really getting to dislike them. At any rate, I don't know many
wmii users that use debian stable outside of servers, but I know
plenty who use unstable (as attested to by the fact that three
people have already complained about this bug on the list), so
at least for now, I'm leaving a fix in place.

Real Programmers don't believe in schedules.  Planners make up
schedules.  Managers "firm up" schedules.  Frightened coders strive to
meet schedules.  Real Programmers ignore schedules.
