Description: adjust advanced settings for GNOME - transitional package
 GNOME Tweak Tool allows the adjustment of several advanced GNOME
 options that can't be configured in gnome-control-center.
 This package is here to ensure smooth upgrades. It can be removed when
 you see fit.

Hmm, gnome-tweak-tool should be universe/oldlibs now. (Debian also
currently has it in 'gnome' instead of oldlibs.)
