AIUI, there are three options: go straight to unstable, use "foo2"
package names in unstable, or use a staging area. Jeff Waugh objects
to the first option for good reasons, you object to the second for good
reasons, and no one has any major problems with the last option whether
they might prefer something else or not.

So let's just do the last option, which doesn't cause any major heartache
for anyone, and stop debating it.

If we can get a consensus -- ie, find a solution that everyone can
agree upon without major issues, even if they might, personally, prefer
something else -- then that's *ideal*. And it seems like it's what's
happened, afaict?

So then let's stop debating it and get it setup.

Well, no, it's not, since Jeff Waugh still thinks that's a stupid idea,
and we've worked out a better one.

Is experimental adequate as a staging area? If it is, then _nothing_
needs to be changed at all, and it's just a matter of focussing on fixing
the packages to everyone's satisfaction.
