I waited till most of the packages I want to have transitioned. Then I 
started "apt-get dist-upgrade", copied and pasted the list of still non 
transitioned packages packages that were to be removed into a text file 
and went on.

Now I can refer to that text file and install what is in there when 
transitioned packages become available. KOffice is still on that list ;), 
but since I mostly use OpenOffice.org its not urgent for me.

I am quite happy with that. There are some rough ends here and there, but 
in general I can work productively with my system.

Still I do not beg the GCC developers to do another of those ABI 
transitions anytime soon. ;) Anyway I believe they had their reasons to 
cause all that trouble ;).
