I agree that the idea of someone who doesn't keep track of the debian
release shouldn't be 
slapped with an unknown upgrade.  But honestly someone who does track it
would keep up on things.  I've personally moved a few of my production
systems over from slink to potato, so by the time potato is stable, I'll
have all of my boxes running on potato.
