Well, unstable (sid) is still affected, and I don't see why different
rules should be applied to subversion and zsh. There are 2 cases:
1. The freeze just prevents unstable packages from entering testing,
in which case it would be OK to make zsh 5.0.0 enter unstable (sid)
and the sentence "It's not in sid, because of the current freeze in
debian." is wrong, or at least very inaccurate.
2. The freeze prevents unstable updates, with the goal to move current
unstable packages to testing, in which case it would be better to
take care of the svn completion now (that would fix the bug in
unstable now and would allow more tests by Debian/unstable users,
while still not affecting testing immediately).
The idea is to keep zsh synchronized with Subversion incompatible
changes at every level.
