As I said to Robert, I still don't see where we are going with this, nor 
why. :-/

I don't dare touch things like pinning and do not recall ever having edited a 
preferences file for apt.  I'm far too scared of mucking up my system.  I 
didn't want updated versions either OOo or Firefox that badly!!

But, as I have said: where are we going with this and why?
