Mmm, my image is probably wrong then. Whether the current
debian-installer can install Sarge is more a
firstname.lastname@example.org question, actually.

This is pending. We're just waiting for mips buildd admins to at last
sign the 3.7.3-3 package and upload it, so that it can hit testing.

There is no need for a special kernel for brltty. Passing
brltty=parameters is needed for serial devices, but for usb devices you
will just need to boot with the cdrom :)
But I wonder whether for speech we couldn't ask them to have the speakup
kernel on the CD too.
