Well, once the freeze is enforced on potato, it will be a snap to
settle the GNOME apps down. Release manager will just say: "Okay,
boys and girls, we now have gnome-libs 1.x.y, recompile with it.
Anything else will be treated as a release critical bug."

One thing that I fear more, is the release of the new QT with the
DFSG free and GPL compliant licence. With Debian's well known
freezing process luck, that stampede will hit us just about when
the freeze starts :'(
