Yeah, that's what we agreed on on IRC too (and maybe even wait a couple
of days after it gets in -updates too :-P ).

But for those who want to take the risk to fix an annoying bug in the
released package, it might be okay.  The thing is that by enabling
-proposed, they might get a list of 40 packages to upgrade, so 40x more
chances to break something (remember that for many people a broken OOo
would be a more urgent problem than an already broken libgksu not being
fixed ;) ).
