It has pros and cons - I would say that in most cases the chance on
trouble with a package is quite low, but the updated packages but do have
some kind of useful fix included (hence the stable update in the first
place), so it kind of makes sense to bring it to ia32-libs users sooner
rather than later. But there's certainly a more cautious counterpoint to
be made. I leave it up to the SRM's to say which they prefer.
