For the record, please note that Steve Langasek just asked for a
freeze exception for Samba so that we can get 3.2.1 in lenny.

As Steve is very well known for being someone who doesn't take
decisions very lightly and also because he took great care in writing
a very good mail to request this....and also because he was in the
past one of the Release Managers in Debian, there is a good hope that
a free exception can be granted by our release managers.
