That's silly. Why not apply the labor that goes into keeping
security.debian.org up-to-date and put it toward keeping stable up to
date? Every time you want to put a package on security.debian.org,
instead install it to stable and make a point-release.
I was under the impression that security.debian.org was a permament
place for security updates so that URLs would always be correct. If
that's not so, I don't see the point of the security site.
