Note that the version of the package in Ubuntu stable is older than the
version at backports.org.

sarge + backports.org works great for us here. Ubuntu isn't quite
sufficiently stable for my taste. But then, I'm one of the people who
thinks that a release cycle faster than once every year and a half for a
distribution is actually too fast.
Anyway, it's all the same package, namely the Debian packages that Sam and
I maintain for Debian proper which slowly propagate into both
backports.org and into Ubuntu. I'm checking with Andres to see if he
wants to keep maintaining the backports.org backport or if I should pick
it up. I have no personal interest in Ubuntu, beyond being willing to
answer bug reports that aren't specific to Ubuntu.
