I'm not convinced. Show me real packages that break.

As the maintainer of smpeg, me. But if any packages weren't upgraded
from potato->woody, they would still be broken, because the soname
changed without the package name changing. This is Bad Juju, but
unfortunately I don't think there's a way to fix it this late in the
I'm of the opinion that only user-compiled smpeg-dependent programs will
break, because everything else will have been upgraded. This isn't good,
but there is no way around it as far as I can see. Regardless of what we
do user-compiled programs will need to be recompiled.
Attached is a list of packages which depend on smpeg, and will therefore
have to be removed if smpeg is removed.
