GNS3 is already in stable! This package is broken - no dynamips (=no 
router emulation at all...), no patched qemu (no virtualization support 
at all...) According to the developers and their online documentation 
for package maintainers http://forum.gns3.net/post11571.html UDP patched 
Qemu is dependency/very important.

We must fix the package and provide at least not so heavy broken ones...

I've prepared new version of GNS3, included into svn dynamips and 
xdotool (this one suggested) - these I can maintain with my mentor, so I 
ask for patch qemu in stable versus UDP support.
