Well, that's why sarge != stable.
What you say is that every update of a core lib like libc6, even a minor
version change, would be a major pain. I doubt the usefulness of this.
OTOH, packages that break thing drop down (e.g kde-i18n-de-3.1 which really
sucks with the KDE2.2.2 in sarge and breaks lots of strings, there). Thus,
translation packages should probably be bound to a range of valid binary
pacakges. I know that this can cause problems but the current setting do the
above with sarge :-/
