(This is not a direct answer, I'm talking about the whole thread)

The beginning of this thread was raising an interesting point, and it
turned into a personal attack against Michael, on a public mailing list.
I really don't think he diserves that (nobody does).
This is more unacceptable to me than any possible broken package in a
repository which exists so that such packages can be tested (people who
enables this repo *know* that breakages can happen).

Please let's try to avoid that kind of behaviour, there are smarter ways
to deal with problems in Ubuntu.
