Finalize seed splits for LTS

Registered by Kees Cook on 2009-04-28

Dapper's seed splits are not finished for handling the June desktop/server security support split. Currently things like firefox and evolution still show up as having 5 year support, even though they are obviously desktop applications and should fall under the 3 year support life-time.
