One more reason for not having gnome2 in experimental, i guess a lot of
people will just do an : apt-get -t experimental dist-upgrade or
something such, as i almost did (to see if it would work, but i
interrupted it when i saw non gnome stuff going to be installed).
BTW, what was the reason why we choosed to use experimental and not a
separate staging area ?
