The code is fond of release names because :

1 - that's what debootstrap wanted
2 - that is a common way of talking about releases, which is probbly why
debootstrap wanted it.

I don't have strong feelings, and in fact I had to bend over backwards to make
the volatile stable, testing names work in a somewhat sane way. So do we want de
bootstrap to accept 2.1/2.3/2.3 as well as slink/potato/woody ?  Perhaps 3 symli
nks in /usr/lib/debootstrap/scripts ?
