>Why bother when a simple pin will do the job:

Because installing a package is cleaner than modifying
some configuration file, and because APT pinning is
sometimes fragile and can have interactions with other
pinning stanzas and is something IMHO reserved for the
local admin to touch.

Hum. Should I add "Important: yes" to the package?
This may remove the need for setting it on hold, but
will cause problems with older APT versions (at least
until squeeze, maybe wheezy too) disturbing its depen-
dency resolver. (This probably got fixed in the meantime.)
