We're stuck with octave-forge depending on half the world, and some of those
pieces are building somewhere. If we were to split octave-forge at least
some less demanding pieces could migrate into testing faster.

The quick way out is 'apt pinning' (Google is your friend here...) and to
simply install the unstable octave-forge package in testing. It'll work fine.

Rafael is trying to get people to build the required components. Maybe one
days this will migrate.
