No, I am someone with a developer's mindset who accpets the fact that
undergoing a wholesale change like we are planning is going to cause
some disruptions.  It sounds to me like you are someone who wants a
mostly production system and just wants to dabble in Debian
development.  If so, perhaps you should wait until Debian 2.0 is
nearly completed before switching to it.
