I can prepare an update to add Breaks in emboss-lib, libajax6 and libnucleus6
in Squeeze, to open the way to a safe removal of the embassy pakcages.  But
EMBOSS 6.1 is an obsolete upstream version. The package in Sid is by all means
superior, and does not need a Breaks declaration unless we would like to support
the use of a mixture of Lenny and Squeeze.

I understand that there is the freeze, but let's be practical and take the
solution that needs the least work for both of us, and which will bring to our
users an up-to-date version of EMBOSS. This version was released less than a
month before the freeze, but is the current stable version, the only one to be
supported upstream. 

If you were thinking about other release-critical issues, please open a
bug so that our discussion can be more concrete.
