Have you checked testing/unstable?

It depends on what the scripts do...  If it is an experiment, why not
(Stephen did the same and he had some LDAP functions bindings in the
process).  Anyway, if so I suggest compiling 3.1 from source: it's not
going to be buggy, and the File/Directory methods were rewritten (so
they are better, and you don't have to forward-port them in the future).
