DBS will not be obsolete until DBS users can upload their packages to sid,
documented or otherwise.

Based on all of the rumblings on this list about a release next spring,
it's going to be another nine or ten months before we can even use this
thing.  And that's if we are to believe that Debian is still capible of
releasing in a timely manner.  I'll believe that when I see it.

In the meantime, I'll continue using DBS which works _now_ rather than
holding my breath for the next release.  Experience has shown me that I
would be holding my breath a very, very long time.
