Just so everybody knows: Dirk has just uploaded to sid an updated version 
with no visible changes to the end user (it just removes an unnecessary 
dependency). It should enter into testing in 10 days. From a practical 
point of view, using 1.9.5-1 (currently in testing) or 1.9.5-2 (now in 
unsatable) should make no difference to anyone.
