Not quite what I meant - I just meant that it would be a good idea to try
and sync everything, which would mean that in the case of some packages
there would be a gap of a few versions while the other dependant packages
catch up. Basically make sure everything links reasonably nicely to the
base gnome packages, then put that batch into unstable, repeat until 1.0.
