I happen to agree. And we also need a 2.1.x Kernel package. 

Brian, here in Germany, every Megabyte you have to download is costing real
money. A lot of money. Please put as much on the CD as possible. Declare it
extra, put it in an unstable dir, put warnings all over the place, but
please include it.

We already exclude non-free comlpetely for good reasons, no question. But
why should we exclude free software, even if it is not production ready.

I understand your concern, you want a stable Debian main Distribution. But
for special hardware, you need some components. Those you can find in Extra.
Some of these components could be a Kernel 2.1.x snapshot.
