Yeah, I see that.

I had thought of 'desktop-base-oldies' but it’d probably be a bit
much to put them all into one. Or maybe not… just make sure it’s
of “extra” priority and possibly from a different source package.
I’m not familiar with how these things are (need to be) packaged,
but I solved my immediate problem by running mc on the .deb from
squeeze and F5ing the files over ;) but I think it’s probably a
one-off effort with only occasional followup actions that need to
be taken, such as the addition of that .xml link group I mentioned.
Maybe we should ask for volunteers in the next DPN? I can ask
madamezou to put this in, if that’s okay for you?

I think I can agree with that, but an arch:all desktop-base-oldies
package in sid which one can just install on wheezy with no trouble
would be definitely cool!
Even if at first it’d just include spacefun (everything else, whatever
it is (I didn’t even realise Debian *had* themes before spacefun), can
come in subsequent uploads).
