And their goals are likely different than the package maintainers:  the
"big tree" should prefer stability in its dependencies, and include new
versions only when a particular feature / bugfix is deemed necessary.

Note that I don't think we have figured out yet how to handle the "known
good working set" problem:  not having a handle on that is actually the
biggest risk of eggification (really, of the "satellite project" model).
Continuous integration (e.g., buildbot testing) against such a working
set should be a major goal for us going forward.
