It's still possible, but tell me a good reason why I should keep debian
on my server, when it offers my to chroot bind, but only if I use the
latest kernel? I see no need to keep debian in that case as os for the
server and so I can switch it.

No, because we already have now for quite some time a bind package in
debian without an automatic chroot. So we should either offer a chroot
for both kernel versions 2.4.x and 2.2.x or still stay with the old
packages offering no automatic chroot.

Because it's not stable and still has VM issues. Aren't you aware about
the problems with 2.4.x and that people on linux-kernel still recommend
2.2.x as stable kernel? 

I prefer having a kernel on my server that is stable and has proven so
and not one, which still hasn't proven as stable and has VM issues.
