Yes, me too, although I only had a quick look. On a side note, the DAD 
issue has been resolved with the latest ifupdown[1], it's still valid on 
wheezy though, so I'll remove the reference, re-assign the bug[2] to 
ifupdown and merge it with [1] if you agree.

Btw, I expect things to break with -dev20. It's got a load of new 
untested (yet awesome) features: agent checks, server-side keep-alives 
etc, so perhaps it's not wise to backport it to haproxy.debian.net's 
wheezy immediately. There's already a double-free corruption fixed after 
1.5-dev20 (fixed with 6762a306) and also a couple of MEDIUM bugs 
(including slow-starting by default). Thus said, it's experimental 
alright, but I suggest we keep up with the snapshots after -dev20 (at 
least every 10-15 days).
