Makes sense.

So this would mean that no tor-infrastucuture stuff could depend on
lastest txtorcon until after Stretch is released (but that's next month,

Does this affect OONI? They definitely depend on Debian-packaged
txtorcon...but they only depend on txtorcon 0.7.0+ according to github
(paging hellais!)

What will be added next release is: dropping txsocksx for a custom SOCKS
implementation (gaining RESOLVE and RESOLVE_PTR via Tor support) and
[actualy, full] Python3 support (txsocksx will not support Python3)...so
I don't think anyone with existing, deployed code should *need* to

If there was a security fix or bug-fix required for an older release, I
would have no problem releasing e.g. a txtorcon 0.14.x or whatever was
needed to support Debian stable or old-stable.
