That work flow might easily morph in spagnetti, as chances are high that the 
maintainer has to upload a fix package to $codename-proposed-updates and 
hopefully another one for sid, where the version might be ever newer (odds are 
high for a different fix), in order to keep sid in sync, because stuff from sid 
flows into rolling... and then again the fix in sid will lag behind. We won't 
rename sid as 'stalling' at some point, right :-)
