If you are feeling daring, you might want to try my just-released
stable snapshot.  At Bruno's suggestion, I've been making periodic
stable snapshots of gnulib (well, this is only my second). I froze on
January 1st, and cherry-picked uncontroversial-looking fixes up until
January 9th.

Git: git://erislabs.net/gnulib.git tag: stable/20100109

(stable branch, master is the debian branch, derived from stable).

See NEWS.stable in the tarball or my just-posted announcement mail
for which commits are included.
