(In any case, presuming it's not the porting to the new library versions
that's the problem, fixing RC bugs quickly is the job of the maintainer
of that package, not the Gnome team; if they've done major hackery that
breaks badly and that they aren't able to fix quickly, they should be
working in experimental too, for the same reason Gnome2.6 is in there.
But in general, that shouldn't be the case anyway.)

((For Gnome2.6's purposes, if that does happen, those packages'll just get
dropped from testing to avoid delaying G2.6 anyway. It's a nuisance, but
shouldn't be a big deal.))
