No, I'm not forgetting that fact. I'm also not suggesting that people
not upgrade. I am suggesting that people might want to prepare before
upgrading most of the packages on the system. (Notify users, schedule
downtime, whatever.) In that case it is better for the apt source to
break when a new release is made than to tranparently start using the
new release.
