It isn't; this is due to forcing the GNOME 2.10 transition even though
sound-juicer is not yet updated in testing (it's tightly intertwined
with the C++ transition, and KDE in particular).  I've asked Jordi
Mallach to upload a meta-gnome2 package with a relaxed dependency on
sound-juicer so that the GNOME metapackages can be installable in the
meantime; the alternative would have been for GNOME 2.10 to be held out
of testing for several more weeks until KDE was ready to transition,
which would mean a forklift update of testing and growing frustration
from maintainers being asked not to update their packages.

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
