we are already in a much _better_ state than for sarge,
the unified package is a great heap forwards.
it should make security support easier.
even more import if the out-of-tree modules and d-i kernel upgrade
is not completed we should choose latest possible deadline.
as it will not be easier for an etch upgrade too.
and please d-i first stage integration is wonderfull,
so lots of praise for the d-i guys and their work.
