Confirm. It'd be very useful to have the updated package.
However, (this is probably not the best way to do it, but...) a work around that I am currently using to sync directories on various machines with various versions of unison is to simply mount the directories to be synced via sshfs. And then use unison to sync the two directories. Syncing through sshfs (though i've seen people advise against it) treats unison as if it was syncing two directories on the same machine, so the other machine's version of unison does not even enter into the picture. 
This does require the following option to be used when mounting:

[machine]# sshfs -o workaround=rename
username at example.com:/home/username/ mountname/

then to sync a directory named Desktop on the remote node to a directory
named Local on your local machine you

# unison mountname/Desktop  /home/username/Local

This definitely has its drawbacks, as you have to have already mounted a
directory on the remote  machine  before you can sync... but it works.

Please upgrade unison to 2.27.57
