That won't affect apt-get's behaviour, not? For apt-get users, isn't
the following the more appropriate way? (into /etc/apt/preferences):

Package: libbonobo-activation4
Pin: version 1.0.3*
Pin_priority: 998

Package: bonobo-activation
Pin: version 1.0.3*
Pin_priority: 998

Package: libbonobo-activation-dev
Pin: version 1.0.3*
Pin_priority: 998
