If I remember correctly, we should have stayed with the old X scheme
in slink too, and split them in potato. But, the freeze was enforced
*after* Branden Robinson uploaded his test packages to 'unstable'
(I don't remember whose fault was it), and so we had to do it in the
slink freeze instead of potato's unstableness. Someone correct me
if I'm wrong.
