I hope you will agree that sometimes we have to think about the future.

With the current state of things, a Debian system which is upgraded by
dselect from hamm to slink, from slink to potato, from potato to potato+1,
and from potato+1 to potato+2 may have, say, X version 5.5, and xfonts

Do you think this may be of any good?
Don't you agree that we should try to avoid it?
