Good catch.  Apparently, the disappearing package trick (see
http://wiki.debian.org/Renaming_a_Package) would not be usable with
lenny package managers anyway, so the only advantage to fixing these
bugs before the release would be to allow users to remove the
transitional package.

Thanks for the hint.
