The osm2pgsql version packaged in testing does not support 64-bit node ids.
However, predictions using linear interpolation indicate that 64-bit node id
support will become necessary February 2013 at latest, therefore most likely
before the Wheezy release. This means that osm2pgsql will become unusable for
(almost) all purposes (which justifies "grave").
The only options that I can see for Wheezy:
1. evaluate whether a 64-bit snapshot can make it into already frozen testing
2. drop osm2pgsql from testing
