So do you suggest that I should have let tetex 3.0 migrate to testing,
even though there are still a couple of important issues with it, and
even though it would have made half of the packages that depend on it in
testing RC-buggy, either because they were uninstallable, or wouldn't

I really think that such things should be sorted out in unstable first,
and only if the fixed packages are available should it migrate to
testing.  At least if testing serves any purpose.
