Hmm indeed, if someone only updates gnome-python from stable, other
packages might be broken. I thought we would keep the Depends only
until apps are fixed. :-(
I suppose Ubuntu doesn't promise a partial upgrade path for any
package set that respect the dependencies.
The split looks really stupid now, should we introduce some
python-gnome2-2 or similar that python-gnome2 depends on, and use
python-gnome2 only as a transition package?
