Of course we are.

Before doing the switch, we have to perform some preparatory steps:

- code cleanup
- implement a unittest suite
- possibly refactoring

We'll do it in the coming months, but definitely not for squeeze,
since we're trying to stabilize reportbug (fixing bugs and refreain
from introducing new features).
