Oops, hope that is the only file that I overlooked.  I blame the odd
mergeWithUpstream behaviour of just being overlay to tarball and
svn-upgrade's inablility to handle it as a "merge"...

According to the last release update[1] we have until mid before we go
into freeze.  Provided we don't run into any issues like with 4.1.0/1
that is well doable, so I would vote for before lenny I think.

However it's probably best to make sure the current version works on
all build hosts, so we might want to leave that for -2?  As for -1 I
think that is ready for an upload right now if we don't want to make
any more changes (and you change the distribution in the changelog
