if its to be set anywhere it should be in netbase NOT procps.  if you
put it in /etc/sysctl.conf every default debian system will output an
error on boot:

error: 'net/ipv4/tcp_ecn' is an unknown key

remember the default kernel in woody is 2.2, not 2.4.

there should be a new option added to /etc/network/options just like
the current syncookies option.
