Of course not, but that's why I think one should have stable _and_ security
on sources.lists. IMHO a good administrator will always keep up with
security issues, and not wait for us to release the next stable update. So
they will get the security updates from _security_ not from _stable_. When
the packages hit stable, the most needed already have updated.
