After upgrading to 12.10 I've noticed that I can't install some of the nice apps created for the AppShowdown, such as:

It seems such a waste having these great new apps added to the repository, only to exclude them in the first next version.
I'm wondering why aren't these apps automatically available in a newer version of Ubuntu. Is it simply that the API is so different that it requires major rewrites and programmer activity or is it some bureaucratic reason? Are there any plans to improve this process?
