Oops, left out useless. [But I'd also be willing to argue that someone
who started using Diety in its current form will encounter a lot of
interface changes, and probably some danger before it's really ready
for prime time.

That's also an issue, true. But I think that goes along with the
territory (e.g. dangerous, wild interface mods, and/or useless).

This is not a campaign against innovation in Debian. It's an attempt
to reduce confusion on the part of people who depend on us. [You
seem to be saying that changing the name on that part of the server
wouldn't really accomplish this. I dunno if you're right or not.]
