Criteria for experimental uploads

There is way too much stuff in experimental, and no reason for it.
Some people erroneously believe that a new package must first go into
experimental and then be moved into unstable.

Starting immediately, an upload to experimental must meet the
following criteria:

1. The package already exists in unstable.

2. The package is such a major change from previous versions that it
will break the setups of all installed users.  Hardly anybody will
want to upgrade without investing an enormous amount of time.
