No. comerr2g and e2fslibsg are obsolete and should be removed from the
archive soon. They are already (again) included in the main e2fsprogs
e2fsprogs was an essential package, and as such, not having a Pre-Depends
line on the libraries was a "dangerous" thing. This is the reason why it
has been rejoined again.
Now the upgrade is much safer than before from a bo system, but some
packages in hamm have still to be recompiled against the new libraries
included in the new e2fsprogs to be compatible with it.
This is a little inconvenience for an already-hamm user, but it is worth
for a bo user who have not upgraded still to hamm, since the upgrade will
now be much more robust.
