Thanks guys, but as I recently posted, I discovered a fix. Synaptic on
my Feisty amd64 computer shows only 1.3.4 and the old 1.2.4. But if you
select 1.3.4, then go to Package > Force Version, there is a drop-down
that lists In other words, Ubuntu didn't really remove, they just did something so it no longer appears as the default
development version in Synaptic. I proceeded to reinstall and
all is well now.

Still, a good trick to remember next time a Debian user needs to go
back to a previous version.
