Why don't we just put a "Updated Drivers" section up on the web for packages
that we may not normally update within a stable release. This way one
could just go to a page within Debian.org and download the packages
they need to upgrade.
It's either this or we allow for updating of stable packages like we do
for security fixes. (I'm pretty sure we do...dunno)...
I think it would probably be best to do the web thing...the only issue
there is making sure that we don't have too many dependecy issues with the
newer packages...(ie..they couldn't rely on other unstable packages).
Just a thought
