Okay, let's see. I have the following comments:

Such version of Amarok depends on KDE4, and I don't think it'll be
uploaded to unstable in time for the libmtp transition. Can you look
into whether the unstable version of amarok (1.4.10-2) can be built
against libmtp8 as-is, or with some minor patch? Thanks.

I'm CC'ing the banshee maintainer to see if he thinks that the version
in unstable can be rebuilt against libmtp8 or not, because I'm fearing
the version in experimental is tied to the Mono transition (can you
confirm, Sebastian?)

Good. Chris, is mtpfs 0.9 ready to be uploaded to unstable, or else, is
the unstable version buildable against libmtp8? Thanks.

Let's wait a bit on the input of the affected maintainers.
