I know. I'm not entirely sure it's correct. The acid test is to check
'apt-cache policy live-boot' and also for each other package and see if
apt really obeys the pinning (also you should see the correct version

Ah, never mind. Rechecked apt_preferences(5) on squeeze which says:

·   The specific form assigns a priority (a "Pin-Priority") to one or
    more specified packages and specified version or version range. For
    example, the following record assigns a high priority to all
    versions of the perl package whose version number begins with
    "5.8". Multiple packages can be separated by spaces.

        Package: perl
        Pin: version 5.8*
        Pin-Priority: 1001

So multiple packages in the same line should work.
