Sorry, but I find this unacceptable. Sure, Unstable can have breakages,
but is not supposed to have one. You cannot just ignore one upgrade path
because it is inconvenient for you.

The -6 package has been release to mirrors and has been installed on
systems, so you have to provide a clean upgrade path to the next package
and not just walk away saying "upgrade from -6 to -7 are not supported"
and leave the user to manually put the package into a working state again.
