The kopete-cryptography package which adds this was pushed out to F10
updates-testing this week. (I'll have to see if I can get it to build on
F9. It appears to require some library from kdepim 4, which is not
available in F9, so it probably won't build on F9, at least not without
some form of hackery. We'll see.)

Yes, one of the big problems with strict "no new versions" policies is that
it prevents bugfixes too. Debian stable and even Ubuntu tend to have many
bugs which could be fixed by simply upgrading to a bugfix version, yet they
won't do it.
