Aaaaaand going for the trifecta here :)

I tried adding the Medibuntu/Lucid repository to my Maverick on the
off-chance gamble that it would work, and it pulled quite a few packages
from there all of which are working just fine so far.  I think the
Medibuntu packages are still ahead of the equivalent Ubuntu-official
ones in Maverick (where they exist) and so will upgrade them if you have
them installed.  Obviously something may possibly break further down the
line and need fixing by switching to the Medibuntu/Maverick repo when
they have that up, but all okay so far (touch wood).
