if there aren't any other reasons to, then yes i'd say so.  if we find that
there are new or as-of-yet undiscovered issues, then we can always add it

cool.  just for crystal clarity i want to repeat that i'd rather not see
this in unstable any time soon, but assuming that it makes it through
a quick vetting wrt dfsg issues i think uploads to experimental could be

regarding the git stuff, i have a few ideas in my head about what i'd
personally like to see in the "final" version of a git repo, though i
haven't fully thought them out yet and you may have other ideas:

- get rid of the debian-only layout (using grafts or whatever)
- a branch for each debian release wrt upstream source
  (upstream-sid, upstream-lenny, etc, no trunk)
- a branch for each debian release wrt debian code
  (the diff between upstream-sid and debian-sid would effectively be
   a ./debian-only diff)
- tags for both upstream versions and debian versions
- ideally some kind of git-svn link between upstream's (upcoming) svn repo
  and our repo.

anyone else have something they want to throw in?
