Stop that. That's how our release process works; using unstable (maybe
even testing, for that matter) for "common-user" desktops is broken. We
need faster releases or a Debian Desktop CDD which provides a more
desktop-friendly system, perhaps tracking testing and freezing
differently from the usual stable.

You're trying to fix the wrong problem, go fix real bugs.

We're usually not doing crazy stuff on unstable, I assure you; we're
just trying to develop our next release.

That, of course, when we're not busy handling unhelpful "ideas" or
complaints from people who do not really understand what's going on. How
many times more this same discussion is going to happen?
