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 :-/
