Yes.  Changing the package is a non-brainer.  Once the package is uploaded
to unstable, it will migrate to testing when both conditions are met: first
the ten-days quarantine period is finished and, second, it builds correctly
on all architectures considered for lenny (currently: alpha, amd64, arm,
hppa, i386, ia64, mips mipsel, powerpc, s390, and sparc).  There will be no
library transition problem as with 3.0.0-10.
