Bug#533577: Breaks are supported in stable, so are now allowed in the archive

already multiple uses of Breaks in the archive now for unstable. The
disclaimer about not using Breaks should be dropped.
Steve Langasek Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer to set it on, and I can move the world.
