Hm... this is an oversight, I believe. The new working area should be
populated by symlinks to the latest stable/frozen...

I'm not quite sure about the need to remove the project/experimental
area... The working area wouldn't be updated quite as often as unstable is
currently, so I'd probably use apt on the pool... and I wouldn't want to
use apt on some software from the current project/experimental...
(For example I'd gladly follow the current NMU series of dpkg, while I'm
not so sure about the dpkg in project/experimental yet)
