Hint already added, though I botched the version # on the php4-rrdtool

That's not one removal, because pysvn also depends on rapidsvn.  I don't see
any reason to drop packages from testing for this transition; I've been
working with the subversion maintainers to get that package fixed up.

And that really shouldn't be anything we need to rush on.

I would expect more packages than this to have to go in together, actually,
given that the new gdk-imlib1 package will conflict with libpng10-0.

I don't think this is something we should worry about until we confirm that
it's a blocker; otherwise it just spends buildd cycles for nothing.

I'm not actually convinced that the KDE hint is that close to being ready.
I need to see what britney has to say about uninstallables when hinting the
libraries in; there may be a number of leaf packages that still need dealing
with before the whole mess can go in.  Until that's known, I'm not going to
make any decisions about whether to push GNOME1 in before KDE.
