I see. Well, those are about 7 months of development (not so active, but...)

But that is, in a sense, the nature of packages/programs that deal
with web scrapping: all of them are highly subject to drastic changes.
(Unfortunate, I know). But that affects youtube-dl, clive, cclive,
get-flash-videos and many, many other packages in a similar vein.

I want to work with you in getting youtube-dl in wheezy and, also, not
breaking other programs like freevo. What can we do?
