Well, I think the ftpmasters do the right thing by not modifying the
override file in an automatic fashion or a blind way.
My override file contains obvious mistakes[*]. However, if they look
at it they can start applying the modifications they seem reasonable,
at a sensible rate, say, several dozens a day, and we will probably
release woody without conflicts among optional packages.
[*] For example, in the file, perl-5.6-base is upgraded to optional,
but it shouldn't because it's a transitional package for upgrades.
Whatever package depends on it should be downgraded to extra instead.
