speaking of this... anyone know where reasonable deb packages might be
found or soon to be found? Ubuntu (Debian) is still on 2.2.x and I am
migrating off from CentOS 5 (2.3.x) and the 'oneiric' solution was going
to turn Ubuntu 10.04 (lucid) into Ubuntu bleeding edge (480 packages
including db5.1 and the kitchen sink - a non-starter).

Thanks and great to hear
