this is total lunacy. We have apps that are rock solid (eg, Listar)
that the upstream still uses a 0.x version number for. We also have
error-prone, beta-ish apps (eg, gnome) that the upstream
says are stable. Would you automatically put a new Gnome into Debian
just because the upstream says a new one is stable? Surely not! With
all those libraries, you better do some testing first.
