This alpha release of 2.0.0 built like a charm for me yesterday, and also
runs fine. I did not upload it to Debian as a recent rebuilt of 1.9.1 needs
to migrate from 'unstable' to 'testing' first. 

Once that migration is done, I may upload alpha releases of R 2.0.0.  Or
maybe I'll wait for the beta releases as I also need a working R in unstable
to maintain the various packages of CRAN packages. Need to ponder that some

If there is interest, I can make the R 2.0.0 test packages available


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