Okay. amarok and rhythmbox are part of the libmtp transition, but the
rest is free from other ties. I think it is reasonable to go ahead with
this transition at the same time as libmtp, with the remarks indicated

I guess you'll be uploading gtkpod to unstable yourselves soon.
Regarding amarok and kipi-plugins, the versions of experimental are
intended to work with KDE4, which is not unstable material yet.

Since it's a very small set of reverse dependencies, I'd really
appreciate if you could rebuild the versions in unstable against the new
libgpod, and report if they all build successfully (but note #516564 for
rhythmbox). Additionally, you need not worry about tripod, since it's
not in testing.

If you can report that the packages can be rebuilt without problems, we
can go forward with this transition immediately.
