The maintainer (Ean Schuessler) is back from vacation
and has uploaded a 1.0.7 package:
as well as fixed a few bugs (scroll to the bottom):

There was a non-maintainer package for 1.0.7, too,
made by Marco Nenciarini, who also offered to step up
the plate to maintain the package, if Ean was MIA.

As Ean's back at it, I don't see a reason to worry.
There seems to be a lot of interest in the debian
community to keep kaffe in debian, especially as it
was seen as a way to get more free java software into
