That's also my opinion at this point. I was willing to push it, but got
another FTBFS yesterday which seems related to the new libevent2 version.
I'm afraid that the risk is too great to justify this transition as the only
package that really requires new version is Transmission. It is unfortunate,
but it seems to be our best option to start this transition soon after natty
Thanks for your input.
