Debian Squeeze: installing trinity requires to remove gnome package

I use Trinity on 3 machines (1×Lenny+2×Squeeze) and was surprized 
installing Trinity on Squeeze:
aptitude asked me to remove the gnome package and a few others (sorry I 
didn't have a copy of the aptitude messages).

The main reason was about desktop-base (initially 6.0.5) conflicting 
with desktop-base-trinity (5.0.3-5).

I assume this isn't the expected behaviour since there's no reason to 
remove gnome when installing trinity.
However, I don't miss gnome at all but still I am surprized.
Does this mean that there will be more and more issues when installing 
trinity on systems with recent libraries in a near future?
I wonder how much trinity will evolve in parallel of kde4/gnome packages 
and underlying libraries that also evolves...?
