Ah.  I had forgotten that.

I'm not sure whether or not "experimental" is appropriate for gettext, then.
An alternative would be to place the packagen on a web site somewhere and
remove it from the Debian ftp site altogether.

Of course, there are also possibly (probably) non-free packages that sit in
project experimental and so we couldn't just include that directory as-is
anyway.  Perhaps including project/experimental isn't such a good idea
after all.

    In theory, theory and practice are the same.  In practice, they're not.
