OK, status of the supercollider packaging. Here's what I wrote on 4th
jan (re a patch to add versioning to the soname):

Since then, there's been some delay in supercolliderland due to
debating garbage-collection issues in the development branch. We can
either wait more, or apply the patch downstream, in which case it
would I think be ready for others to try? What's the next step once
we're OK with the packaging?
