Another example for how the critical path policy breaks things:
This update adds support for xfwm4 and openbox to the firstboot code.
Updates for those 2 window managers:
which add the virtual firstboot(windowmanager) Provides have already been
pushed to stable! So now we have 2 WMs satisfying firstboot's dependencies,
but not actually supported by its code. The result: the Xfce and LXDE spins
will be outright BROKEN. (And it's not my fault, I only did the firstboot
build and update requests, the other 2 packages were pushed by cwickert.)

I CANNOT push the firstboot update which UNBREAKS those 2 spins because of
the update policy. So instead of preventing breakage, the policy CAUSES
breakage! How can it fail more spectacularly for you to finally realize it's
a failure?

To all proventesters: please +1 that update, EVEN IF YOU HAVEN'T TESTED IT,
we need to get out of this impasse!
