It's probably a little bit of both. Some of the translation changes
might introduce new bugs after all.

Part of the answer comes down to how long we're stuck between d-i final
and the sarge release. If we have a lot of time I intend to set things
up so we can start to do development for etch. I've talked with James
Troup about adding a special branch in the archive for post-sarge d-i
development (still need a good codename for it though), and we would be
releasing to that from trunk, so we'd have to use the sarge branch for
any last minute releases. And of course for some packages, trunk is
already diverged from sarge and we are already releasing from the sarge
