We have a few more packages and get paid a little less than the
competition. However, I think the Debian release will be more stable
than RedHat at least (not sure about the rest).

I don't quite understand your reasoning. Before we slap the stable
sticker on this thing, you want us to upgrade two key elements to their
unstable version? I don't think Debian should ever use an unstable kernel
as the default kernel, although I see no problem making a source package
that the user compiles. I'd advise holding gcc2.8 back until it's
stability is proven, which will probably be no sooner than Debian 2.1.
