but autobuilders will still compile with unstable, so it's really useless
(even dangerous) to upload i386 build on woody, when autobuild packages are

Also there are problems with library dependencies. Should I let rot a
package in unstable uninstallable, just because I hope it will make it in
month or two into testing? No way!
