Sure, but why invest my time in hamm which will be obsoleted in half a
year anyway?  While i like updated components i'm rather conservative
regarding complete system upgrades. For me bo is running fine enough
but i'd like to use a few features only present in more recent
versions of Debian software.  What's so bad about being a bit more
oriented towards a user's perspective?

Well, i prefer to use the few months (pretty much time waiting BTW)
until final release of hamm to upgrade the relyably stable system i'm
working with now.  I need software i can use today and can't wait for
tomorrow to happen.  Hey, Debian is not Microsoft!
