I'm doing a plain upgrade right now, because dist-upgrade wants to
remove mozilla and galeon (which are from non-official repositories).
I'm going to investigate this after the update, and see if it's because
there are newer packages in the main repository, or that there's some
dependency that's being upgraded.

I used to do some manual upgrades (apt would barf, and I'd cd
/var/cache/apt/archives/ and dpkg -i *) if it was necessary, but I've
not had any badly behaved packages in sid for a long time.
