	How many packages do you want ntthe line? Do you know how many
 packages break? Why just libc6? Why not ever package breaking
 every other package generate a plethora of conflict statement?

	I think it is good for the soul to have a little inconvenience
 once in a while.

Santiago> It is really so much work?

	I think so, yes. I think it is impossible to do this
 absolutely right anyway.
