No, the only links remaining are the ones that haven't changed since slink
released. I think that slink symlinks into sid (sid is stable) and potato
only symlinks to sid for things that are still the same as slink (so when
a package is updated in potato, it no longer points to sid, but the
package is installed into potato).
