Thanks, I'll take a look. If I manage to get it working on my system
locally, I'll post some instructions here (+ maybe patches).

Btw. is this integrated with udd/tracker/ddpo? (If so, I haven't
found it.)

Well, barring edge cases, merging sid and experimental seems to be
in the same kind of problem space as merging sid and custom
packages. Your idea about source packages seems the right way to
go, thanks.
