Gak! I hope not. As a distro, we should be very conservative in what we
put our 'good enough for you' stamp on. 2.3.$bignum/2.4.0 is feature-rich,
but not tested enough to be in debian.
Hell, I'm just (as ~.10) beginning to trust 2.2 kernels enough to put
it in a locked closet a thousand miles away. I think it's very
appropriate that our dev cycle nearly parallels the kernel's dev cycle.
I say, let the kernels mature! 2.2 is just now[*] ripe enough for us to
say to Joe User, ``this will work for you.''
