Well, it appears that Debian is adding Faudio packages to sid.

Note this doesn't really help with our packages, as we don't package for sid and the sid packages can't be used for our jessie, stretch and buster builds.

My guess is that this will follow the same pattern as libvulkan/vkd3d, with distros adding Faudio packages to their new releases and ignoring the old ones.
