Is there a reason for this apart from the sync.rb bug?

This question still remains...!

Yes, the sync.rb bug is the only reason for this versioned dependence.

Good. :)

For anyone wanting to install 080703-2 on etch, please follow and/or
comment on the patch here:

HOW TO install samizdat- on etch howto-version-0.3

This points to my last email on how to install on etch. As well, it
recommends this bug fix:

and a hack because of something between mahoro/ruby/magic in recognising
flv files on etch. The command 'file' works ok on flv files on etch, and the mahoro library (as backported the way i described previously)
does recognise e.g. png and jpg files, so it's not obvious where the bug
lies. Since this is easy to hack and will disappear when lenny becomes
stable, IMHO it's not worth finding a more elegant solution.

For anyone interested in the various patches, of the 14 open patches
(excluding the etch HOWTO), i've updated 6 of them for 080703-2 - look
for [080703] or [080703-2] in the patch title.
