My system is very similar.  there's rarely things that break, but
aptitude does an amazing job.

There's no additional dependencies for the videotimeline branch.
In the past you needed boost-regex but recent libardour also uses it.

As for compiling icsd (the video-server): There's lots of dependencies,
most notably ffmpeg, but all are in debian. Nevertheless I suggest to
just use the statically linked binary.

I've pinned priorities:
  wheezy/testing:700; sid/unstable:500, squeeze/stable:300

works for me. We'll look into merging it upstream after the 3.0 release.

yes. git is your friend.
