Let me state as FFmpeg maintainer in debian and ubuntu that the current
plan is to release squeeze with 0.5, just as ubuntu 10.04 (lucid). I
don't have the time and energy to migrate all packages to 0.6, and I do
know for sure that quite a number of package do not work with 0.6 yet.
(FYI, I'm currently doing exactly this transition for ubuntu 10.10)

For testing purposes, I've already packaged 0.6 for debian/experimental.
I'll upload this package to unstable after squeeze release.  Depending
packages that want to test FFmpeg 0.6 can be uploaded to
debian/experimental as well.
