Or, perhaps, "no newer upstream release" is being taken to mean "no
significant subsequent development". Bug reports and requests for newer
versions from users tend to change such views.

Anyway, given the implication that the code has been developed somewhat since
0.5 was released, I'd view it as a sign that upstream needs to get its act
together and do a new release. (It'd be too late for etch, though, by about
two months...)
