The stable version of Ubuntu only gets security-fixes so that package
will soon grow out of date. And having it in the development version of
Ubuntu is not the correct way,since the development version of Ubuntu is
only for the purpose of creating the next stable version of Ubuntu.
I guess there is an exception for code that in time of the release
*will* get stable (as Gnome), but as I read your mail, that is not what
you ask for, right?
