We also have the problem with haskell-src-exts (a build dependency of
hlint), where no such easy solution is available. This might not affect
the transition, as it is “only” a build dependency and haskell-src-exts
is not in testing.

Maybe Iain Lane can comment on agda.

I was just doing this this very moment. This should fix it, and I
regularly check http://tinyurl.com/ydqdkdd so I’ll watch this.

There is the unreproducible bug
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=554174 which needs to
be closed or tagged squeeze-ignore (which you can probably do). Other
than that, it looks good!
