cool, thanks for the support. Note though: I recently pulled the iconv
packages from testing, because they were ones, aimed at the CSWiconv ->
CSWlibiconv package name change. With various bits and pieces of our stack
currently being under heavy change (gtk, pango, bdb) I would like to
postpone such a (purely cosmetical) change.

I will put new iconv packages with the current naming scheme into testing
later this day. Will keep you updated.
