yes, but i think it's clear at this point that debian's "stable"
would almost be better named "stale".  sure, you and i are happy
to run unstable and deal with the occasional borken package, but
most institutions refuse to use debian b/c stable is too old, and
unastable is too iffy.  maybe it's partly in the naming, but they
really are scared by unstable.
