Well aware, yes, and I still think it's an appropriate distribution
channel. Generally, nobody uses 'experimental' as a regular place to
get package updates - rather, someone posts an announcement somewhere
"for anyone interested in _____, I've uploaded version ____ to
experimental, I'd appreciate some testing, now here are the reasons I
didn't want to put it in unstable yet...." I shall certainly mention
the new WC and repo formats.
