"If it works for you and you're happy with it, then great, else wait

Put this in your /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb     http://mirror.noreply.org/pub/tor experimental main

(It's for sid, and happens to work for sarge at the moment, but not
for woody.)

The 0.1.0.x code has significant robustness improvements for hidden

You might also try a different hidden service, e.g.

how hosed the network is.
