Decision made, update approved? :)

Yeah, it's inconvenient for everyone, but allowing debs/sources to sneak
into testing without their corresponding udebs is even more
inconvenient.  That's really the only reason this freeze rule is
currently in place; all you have to do to get an update in is to ask,
and we'll coordinate getting the various bits into testing in sync.
