I don't have any scratch boxes to test with ATM, but we're going to be
receiving a bunch of R410s and R310s within the next few weeks, so
I'll try and grab one of those for testing before it goes production.

No problem.  I only asked as on a couple of occasions I've had
dependency version issues when running cross distro packages
(although, due to the nature of stable, running Debian debs on Ubuntu
works more often than Ubuntu debs on Debian).

Thanks.  In the meantime, I'll browse the techcenter wiki more deeply.

Cheers.
