If they don't, we can just stick slink's boot disks back in. It wouldn't

Careful, you're getting hysterical. What debian release has _not_ had
release-critical bugs? (*cough* dpkg *cough*) Have you looked at the

be easily fixed by dropping packages from the dist, and some that
frankly aren't likely to be fixed.
