Thanks! I've already uploaded a set of packages.

And, to add insult to injury, I made a mistake in Fluidinfo's packages (always
fail publicly! :-)), I forgot to add a ~ suffix (e.g. ~ppaX) and I'm not sure
if they'll upgrade cleanly to the official ones. Anyway, I fixed that in the
packages uploaded to Twisted's PPA, although those who are using the previous
ones should downgrade to 8.2.0-2~ppa1~hardy1 or remove them completely and
reinstall the ones from Twisted's PPA.

No, I don't. If you don't mind, I'd like to add a note telling users to use
Fluidinfo's PPA if they want to grab packages with backported stuff (right now
they mainly contain fixes for Twisted.web from trunk), but which are
completely unofficial and subject to breakage.
