I install what I need from unstable, but this simply is not right -- a
disservice to our users.

You are the maintainer of these two packages. Please permit r-base to migrate.

I don't think there is anything that Andreas could do to allow r-base to migrate, without intervention from the release team.

We don't want broken combinations of packages in testing, so either r-base is held, or r-bioc-s4vectors and its 30 or so reverse dependencies are removed.

There was some feedback in bugs #947001 and #947004 from s4vectors upstream:

Would you be able to investigate the problem from the r-base point of view? Right now, it is not clear to me whether r-base has introduced a regression, or r-bioc-s4vectors needs updating.
