FYI: Yesterday evening Debian packages of 1.8.1 alpha were uploaded which
will be available via the 'unstable' portions of the usual Debian mirrors.
As of right now, ia64, hppa, sparc, arm and powerpc have already built
packages too. I intend to do another release of '1.8.1 beta' next Friday.

Those are my principles, and if you don't like them... well, I have others.
