IMO that's a bad idea which doesn't help starting lucid at all.
- you rely on unstable -> testing transitions which currently
are blocked by eglibc/xulrunner/sqlite. waiting for every
such transition hinders lucid, it doesn't help it. The
merge/sync window is short enough this cycle, please don't
delay it further.
- For an LTS we are going to try reducing the number of
versions for a software; consolidating on the versions
that Debian currently switches to reduces the amount of
resources spent on these tasks.
To get advantages, we should start syncing from unstable, and later
switch to syncing from testing.
