Thanks for reporting.

As we already discussed on irc, I agree that apart from the long-term 
solution of Sugar rewritten to use newer Tubes API there's really no 
alternative to re-introducing the older API as a separate package.

I have prepared a package, we have both tested that indeed it works, and 
I am now polishing for official release to Debian, tracked at 
http://bugs.debian.org/782448 .

Sadly it is totally unreasonable to expect a new Debian package to get 
included in Jessie while in deep freeze, so I see no other option than 
to request the removal of *all* Sugar packages for the Jessie release: 
Sugar without collaboration is broken Sugar! :-(

I have hesitated, to try come up with smarter approaches, but Jessie 
release is fast approaching, so I will probably file the gigantic 
removal request later today...

Just to be clear: I will request removal from Jessie branch of Debian 
only - packages will stay in unstable and experimental.
