Would that apply also to new packages being pushed as updates to stable
releases, or only to updates to existing packages?
That is a good point. It's obviously the case that a new package can't
be less functional than the non-existent package it replaces, but
there's also a risk that a new package could break other packages that
are already installed - which is basically a way of me saying "I don't
know yet", and I hope that we can sort that out with some further
discussion. The real risk I see with blocking new packages is that
there's much less chance for them to get external testing.
