Yeah. I suspect in the case I'm thinking of (xfce) that they aren't
really close enough to the end of their dev cycle for this to be
justified and I'm not just talking about one package so it gets harder
still to support.  (Anyone wanting to help in general with xfce.*plugin
is most welcome over on the pkg-xfce alioth project...  :))

I suppose it'll have to be experimental and then suffer the bug reports
when it finally hits unstable when it's in a usable state.

But yeah, I take the point that in general if it's only one package and
you're going to stick with it then unstable is better as long as you are
