A security update in sarge for a different package breaks
OOo2 in some circumstances on Sarge. That is, if someone
installs OOo2, which means fetching it from elsewhere
(backports perhaps?) an unrelated security update will stop
Personally I think the DS team have enough work making sure
security updates are a smooth process for packages *in the
OS*: being expected to test random-external-package-x on top
of that is asking too much.
