 It's too complicated, human-dependent, and time-consuming to build
 interdependent package updates in stable releases.

 Two cases:

  * gstreamer and gstreamer-plugins-base are released at the same time, and
 so are pre-releases of those. They soft-depend on each other (gstreamer
 can be updated on its own). It's currently not possible for me to offer
 both pre-releases of gstreamer and gsteamer-plugins-base without either:

  1. asking for a package to be tagged into the build roots
  2. pushing gstreamer into stable (takes a few days at best), and push the
 gstreamer-plugins-base package separately

  * gnome-bluetooth and gnome-phone-manager, where I need to ask for gnome-
 bluetooth to be pushed into the buildroot tree. Sometimes that just
 doesn't work (as could have been seen in
