Besides that, I uploaded dthe 4.0.x backport quickly after 4.0.x was in
unstable. (factually breaking the rules, but LO has a exception for important
updates. 3.5-Y>4.0 is so). Otherwise the policy is "take from testing".
4.1 will follow when it's tested in unstable...

Should I tell you what hinders in from entering testing now?

Thus it's blocked by
 a) being too young
 b) by the KDE people adding a stricter depends and that one's blocked due to
    a bug
 c) new dependencies LO 4.1 has.
 d) python3-defaults because python3.3-uno was just a workaround and now
    it's back to sane packaging, but with the caveat that it needs the
    new default pyton (python 3.3 IS needed, even upstream)

Please tell me how I should have speeded this up? There's no way out of the
waiting time and no, I am not going to use internal libraries.
