This will definately delay us, but by how much is anyone's guess.  I'd not wait
on 2.4 though.  We DO need to have goals though.  glibc 2.1 and 2.2 kernel as
the basis was what I thought were the big ones this time around.  apt-gnome will
also be in there I believe.  For 3.0, I'd guess the replacement of dselect with
apt-find, as well as to do a more "Redhat-like" install, where we don't need to
have every type of hard drive controller compiled in in order to be able to
install with different hardware.  I know the WD7000 probe would break on MANY
systems with an Adaptec controller installed.  We need to avoid show-stoppers
like that.  This was discussed for a while, but I don't remember a resolution.
Does anyone know?
