i don't think potato has apt 'pins' but i've read about them
on-list (presumably in discussions between woody users)...

DEBIAN NEWBIE TIP #114 from D & E Radel <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Installing gnome-apt (although a little buggy) is A GREAT WAY TO
FIND OUT WHAT PACKAGES ARE AVAILABLE and install/remove them
Newbie tip: Also I discovered that
apt-get remove [packagename]
works much better when there are dependancy problems than
dpkg -r [packagename]
