Well, feel free to send me to hell, but I still have problems to
understand here. As far as I see, the mirror/suite choice in debconf
is chosen among "stable", "testing" and "unstable" both in
choose-mirror and, in 2nd stage by apt-setup from abse-config.

We currently default it to "testing". So, what will happen when sarge
will have been released ? The installer will continue pointing users
to testing by default...and thus have them install etch....or is there
some magic I'm missing here?
