I can only guess, but I think it is because of orbit2's conflict with
liblinc-dev. I would really like to see ORBit2 2.8 to go into testing,
since I plan to remove the liblinc-dev package. But on the other hand I
do not want to remove the liblinc-dev package as long as ORBit2 2.8 is
not testing, because doing so would make stuff unbuildable in testing
alone. (You need either ORBit2 2.8 or Linc and ORBit2 2.6 to compile
stuff for ORBit.) It's a hen-and-egg problem.
