On m68k, considering just packages in unstable, "electric" can't be
installed. If we look at the m68k Packages file from sid, we find that
electric depends on lesstif1, libc6 (>= 2.1.2), xlib6g (>= 3.3.6-4). If
we look at xlib6g in sid/m68k we find it's a new binary all package
that's part of X4. We also find that the xlibs package on which it
depends hasn't been uploaded yet. So that's why it's not installable.

This means that when trying to add electric to testing, the appropriate
script found that electric ended up uninstallable on alpha. The depends
list for electric 6.00-1 on alpha includes: lesstif1, libc6.1 (>=
2.1.97), xlibs (>= 4.0.1-1). That is, electric depends on X 4, and X 4
hasn't made it into testing yet.
