[3] makes no sense since gnome-hearts isn't in Ubuntu yet, but I'll make
the changes required by [2]. I'm waiting for gnome-hearts 0.1.2 to hit
the upload queue. 0.1.2 already in Debian's SVN but 0.1.1 is in unstable
and testing.

Not experimental. The change to gnome-games was made on June 10th to
Debian unstable[5] and migrated to Debian testing about a week later.
Adjusting Edgy's gnome-games should be easy, seeing that it's a
relatively small fix (23 lines not counting changelogs, most of it
debian/control.in fluff).

That should be easy too. Just grab gnome-hearts's debian/ from
and delete the gnome-cards-data patch from the patches/ directory. The
downside is that users will have the bonded.png card deck installed
twice, but even without gnome-cards-data gnome-hearts will happily play
along with the gnome-games card decks. I can build the package too if
you lack access to debian SVN.
