I am afraid that there are differences in handling packages which have 23000
users reporting to popcon and 83.

We blocked packages for screenscraping late in the release and although
protocol changes can happen with ICQ et al. we expect them to be of lower
frequency than websites usually change.  (Of course, ICQ can always prove
us wrong on the whim.)

And postgresql got a special exeception with upstream doing bugfix-only
releases with enough QA.

Kind regards,
