The D-I team may remember that we had similar problems to install Sarge 
after the release of Etch. I spent a LOT of time back then to fix the 
issue and had a new release of D-I ready in July, only to find that the 
SRMs never released my oldstable updates until end of December, despite 
the fact that they were aware of the issue.

Obviously that experience has left me completely unmotivated to make the 
same effort this time. It's someone else's turn.
