I don't want to have to use different options for different distributions,
like switching to --resolve-deps for sid only. From QA point of view,
we are distributing something that is only lightly tested as a stable 
release; which means it will inevitably be broken in subtle ways
on architectures that are more lightly tested.

If Priorities aren't going to be updated in a timely manner within 
sid distribution, it might be time to rethink about its usefulness.
