The changes that are directly relevant to the bug are:

  * Split out gnome-accessibility-themes to fullfill the old dependencies.
    (Closes: #661471)
  * Split out gnome-themes-standard-data for arch-indep files. [lintian]

These two are considered the split that fix the bug.

Then, the other changes are:

  * Capitalize "GNOME" in package description. [lintian]

which is minor change, and:

  * Add multi-arch support.

which is part of the release goal.

I suppose all should be pushed into Wheezy. We can do so either in a single
upload or two. But in any case, I think it could be done via unstable, not
