It would be preferable to have the package migrate first to avoid the
(albeit low) possibility of anything that needs to migrate quickly
getting stuck behind it; admittedly a few recent uploads, including a
couple of python2.6 binNMUs, appear to have picked up updated ffmpeg
dependencies already.

In any case, ffmpeg should migrate in tonight's britney run.

http://release.debian.org/~adsb/ffmpeg_binNMUs.txt is what I believe to
be the list of packages potentially needing binNMUs.

Excluding those packages which have either had sourceful uploads in the
past day or so (e.g. vtk) or have already scheduled or completed binNMUs
for python2.6 (e.g. picard) would be useful to avoid duplicated work and
