On the mention of transition, do you know why didn't swt-gtk 3.6 manage 
to get into testing, although all packages depending on it did migrate 
to 3.6 ? Note: currently you'll find a "serious" bug against swt-gtk, 
but that was just filed 9 days ago (swt-gtk & all dependencies were 
transitioned a month ago)

Thanks, I wanted also to discuss a couple of issues:

1) Bug #631048 is not fixed in 3.7, I'm not even sure that it would 
fixed in 3.7.x series [1]

2) How about removing the version from package names, ie:
 libswt-gtk-3.7-java        -> libswt-gtk-java
 libswt-gtk-3.7-jni         -> libswt-gtk-jni
 libswt-gnome-gtk-3.7-jni   -> libswt-gnome-gtk-jni
 libswt-mozilla-gtk-3.7-jni -> libswt-mozilla-gtk-jni
 libswt-cairo-gtk-3.7-jni   -> libswt-cairo-gtk-jni
 libswt-glx-gtk-3.7-jni     -> libswt-glx-gtk-jni
 libswt-webkit-gtk-3.7-jni  -> libswt-webkit-gtk-jni
 libswt-gtk-3.7-java-gcj    -> libswt-gtk-java-gcj

 Since the API of SWT seems to be not changing.
