Bug#173215: Handling of "proposed-updates" with APT::Default-Release
When setting APT::Default-Release to e.g. "stable" and having a mixed
setup in sources.list, Packages from "proposed-updates" are not
considered to belong to "stable", so `apt-get' (without -t) will
produce unexpected results on them.
Especially `dselect' and friends will propose to upgrade all Packages
in "proposed-updates" to the version in "testing" or "unstable", which
is really not what the dummy wants.
I consider this a documentation bug.
To fix the problem, /etc/preferences could be used like this (is this
proper, apt gurus?)
