Maybe we can release 4.0.15-1 in unstable without the 4.0.14-8 changelog
(not to close bugs twice) and with the sames patches as in 4.0.14-8 except
for su (patch 423, IIRC), and so with the same changelog as in 4.0.14-8
except for the extry regarding su.
And then release 4.0.15-2 in experimental with the su stuff.

I'm adding two more actions for me [0]

 * Submitting wishlist bugs for all the manpages package we are replacing.

 * Submitting wishlist (or higher if 423 is uploaded in unstable) bugs for
   the package we will conflict with after the su transition.

[0] This "me" is not the same "me" as when Christian is writing.
