maybe a first useful direction for SAT-deployment would be to have it
generate hints for the transition it suggests. Unless I am mistaken,
hints are checked by britney for correctness, so if the Conflict
handling is insufficient, the hint becomes a no-op. But in the cases
where no problem arises, the hint might already be a useful time-saver
for the release team.

Is “hint” or “easy” appropriate for this? And can one specify also
individual binary packages (e.g. after a binNMU) for transition?
http://release.debian.org/britney/hints/README mention only
source-package/version tuples.
