Aside from the lack of pre-discussion, co-ordination etc., the last few
weeks of a freeze _really_ isn't the right time to be starting a large
(or indeed small) transition in unstable. We now have at least 87 (based
on this morning's britney run) packages which won't be able to receive
updates via unstable should they turn out to have lately discovered RC
bugs. If any of those packages are then involved in dependency chains,
the same could be true of packages outside of the R module packages.
