I said confuse. Doesn't mean it won't work at all. But apart from
stuff not getting cross-graded (as you put it) you can also end up in
loops that will re-cross-grade a package every time you apt-get
upgrade and the like.

Having apt-get say there is a new version of foo available every day
is damn anoying.
