That is indeed easier in Ubuntu/with PPAs, but in Debian it's more
complicated. Some GNOMEish packages are still in experimental, and
their upload to sid is blocked by something else. Testing migration
would also need to happen at the exact same time. Also, the full and
correct set of Breaks: would be quite an intangible mess; we'll add
some, but as all of the ~ 15 binaries would then break all of the
others, they aren't easy to get right.
