In general this is what we're doing, however this is driven by
components-mismatches, and I'm also inspecting cases of source demotions to
see whether these are Ubuntu-specific packages which should be removed as no
longer used, instead of demoted.

In the case of multipath-tools, the udebs are listed as candidates for
demotion in the release pocket and NOT in the proposed pocket.  This is why
it wouldn't be an immediate obvious candidate for demotion.  However I don't
see anything that explains why it's being kept in main in -proposed, so I'm
going to demote in both pockets and see if that gives us more information.
