I'm not sure if that's unique to Aptitude. I use Synaptic most of the
time, and sometimes apt-get directly when Synaptic won't let me force
more than one package at a time to come from unstable. But I still
can't upgrade to GNOME 2.10 (all of it; I have some parts of it from
2.10) because of sound-juicer. *sigh*
