From what I can tell, there isn't much of an overlap between the Gnome2
packages from experimental, and the ones in unstable.  So the packages
that you have in unstable probably won't be upgraded if you add
experimental. (e.g. there's no libgnome2 in experimental.)

The only Gnome2 things in experimental right now are the programs
(e.g. panel, games, media, gnome-session, applets, gnumeric) and a few
libraries that those programs require.
