Any and all changes done now will be targeted experimental until Squeeze
is released - to make room for preparing in unstable a late bugfix
targeted Squeeze if need arise.
As such I feel we should simply release now.
But this raise another issue: Should there be a way to suppress it, or
should it always be used when possible? Or perhaps the trick is to set
DEB_DH_GIREPOSITORY_ARGS = -X*
or something like that.
