I'd expect the spaces there to cause problems. If they don't, I'm out of
ideas too.

I don't think that apt cares as far as parsing the file, but I'm not sure
that the syntax of apt_preferences would allow these values to be used in

I haven't tried apt 0.6, but apt 0.5 does allow for these values to be used as pins:

pretzalz@Pretzalz:~$ grep -C2 Marillat /etc/apt/preferences
