Let me add a factoid here.  I installed 2.0 from an official CD.
Yesterday, I used apt-get to upgrade my installed packages (540MB of stuff)
to stable-updates.  It downloaded 6MB (including a new version of XFree
that I didn't really need).  I don't consider that upgrade a major new
release, and I'm still content installing Debian on another PC using the
same 2.0 CD.
