I've already submitted a bug against kernel-image-2.0.36 (with patch)

Well, if *everyone* waits until testing is done, that testing will *never*
be done.  Remember, you need the last (latest) version before you can test
it.  Additionally, most of the ISDN cards sold the last 6 months are only
supported by the ISDN code in 2.0.36; this is not a simple case of wanting
the latest version number, it is a *significant* improvement.

Whether 2.0.36 should be the standard kernel in slink or only available
