So, basically, for those following along, Holger asked me to make sure
that squeeze LTS couldn't end up ahead of stable (wheezy).  I therefore
added the following version constraints:

mhy@franck:~$ dak admin v-c list-suite squeeze-lts
squeeze-lts MustBeNewerThan oldstable
squeeze-lts Enhances oldstable
squeeze-lts MustBeOlderThan stable
squeeze-lts MustBeOlderThan proposed-updates

This probably means that in some cases (especially those involving new
upstream versions), stable security updates will need to hit p-u before
the LTS uploads happen.  If this is a problem, we should just revoke
those parts of the version constraints and leave only the oldstable
