I think Jeroen's question was valid - there's progress of getting
Debian onto Mach and BSD. Hell, I could have said about 
compiling Linux 2.0 or something which would be a lot faster than
trying to compile 2.4 series. At this point, I don't think that
one can assume which version of kernel you run if you run

Well, maybe in Red Hat world you can :)
