Thanks for the info. I've built proxmox-rs and most API are not
affected. There only exist very little differences that should be
manually manipulated.

btw, since bookworm has just soft freeze, is there currently any on-going
development? And, when will the development tree avaliable?

Got it, thanks!

Haha dpkg-deb --extract is a nice trick! I've done it before for some
packages. debcargo use `Architecture: any` for librust-*-dev files but I
believe they could be installed for `all`.
