It's great to hear that.
Having the packages in the main archive means that there will be no
insanities like everything depending on exact versions on all other
packages, conflicting with coreutils, and other such gems.

It also means one will be able to use unmodified packages from Debian. 
Currently, backporting is so hairy you have to use a chroot for anything

And even fixing a bug, like maemo's libvte showing gray (\e[30;1m) as black,
currently requires you to have your fixed package use the exact same version
number as the buggy ones, with all the consequences.

Having to mix qt with better sets of libraries is a small price to pay :p
