I think we should get back to what ``frozen'' means at this point.
It is properly the collection of all packages that will be released as
Debian 2.2 in about two monts. As such, although there is no guarantee
that it will not break on you, it is supposed to be far more stable
than ``unstable''. Now, if the ppc stream can not provide a certain
package in a certain version, it will then produce the version that
best fits with the original aim for ``frozen'', that is the most
stable one.

Therefore, if a certain maintainer uploads a certain package
(enlightenment, for example) in ``frozen'', we all assume that
 1. we can install it (!)
 2. we can run it (even if it may still crash at some point).

 As enlighenment can not even be installed, then I ask for the last
 time to PLEASE!!! put back the 0.16.3-6 version of enlighenment in
 ``frozen''. I remind that perl has the same problem...
