Ah, that's the reason. I thought there were different source packages
involved (for libkrb53), but apparently you ask to do a gross hack to
keep the libkrb53 binary package in while migrating krb5 and its
remaining binary packages. This is possible, though I'd rather not do that.
If we would do something like that we would probably retain all the
binary packages from the previous source package btw.
Sorry for misunderstanding, though krb5 is almost ready to migrate
without having to leave libkrb53 in testing, so I'd prefer to do that.
