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.''
