There are still 2 problems remaining: lestiff2 (patch in BTS) and cyrus-sasl
(needs a sourcefull upload to fix binNMU / multiarch problem).
I wanted them solved before I request ia32-libs goes into testing.

I downgraded the bug because the critical issues have been solved.
That means that many users can install ia32-libs and use it just fine.
But not everyone can. So there is still room for improvement.
Ia32-libs is at a stage where it is possible to release it with a
slightly reduced usefullness. But idealy I would like there to be no
regression to squeeze, namely the two issues above.

The number of issues have gone down but not far enough yet. Most
critical and trivial there is:
That one prevents ia32-libs-gtk to be installable with a dependency on
libgnomecanvas and 3rd party binaries still depend on that.
