Note that I was suggesting that if no upload had been done for the
package after four months, the libraries it uses be relinked against
libpng3 *even though* it will break some applications.  NMUers should not
wait nearly so long, and four months of NMUing should address a sizable
percentage of the affected packages, after which point unfixed packages
should be allowed to be broken; but I'm not confident that 1 month is
long enough for MUs and NMUs to run their course.

If, after one month most packages have been fixed, there's no reason not
to speed up the timeline.
