the change is in unstable, and it's not been automatically propagated to Wheezy.
after the change Joss made, a lot of the GNOME packages have been resumbitted with a different compression, which makes it easier to switch back to GNOME as the default UI.
but even if that weren't the case: the important thing to take away is that the GNOME project is engaged in productive discussions with all downstream packagers, and it's actively trying to improve the QA and development for both distributons and software developers - something that has been a sore point of the project for many years.
obviously, we get kicks in the head both if we don't do things, or if we do, so it's par for the course, I guess.
