No -- everything uploaded to Debian unstable should be "release" 
quality.  Snapshots that are not blessed by upstream, as in this case, do 
not meet this criteria.

Furthermore, because of the gratuitous SONAME bump in every release of -
base and -gui, this will break all GNUstep applications more often than 
they break now.

Last, but not least, the Debian GNUstep team consists of 3 active people 
-- 2 of them are not DDs and all of us participate in other projects.  We 
don't have the resources to do this, but even if we did, it would be hard 
enough.  Even uploading to `experimental' would be useless, because the 
apps in sid have to be recompiled against the unstable libraries in 
`experimental' and thus should depend on them, which is forbidden by the 
Debian Policy for very good reasons (e.g. packages in `unstable' will be 
uninstallable because they will depend on packages in `experimental').
