Why can't that go into sarge? Ok it wouldn't be much use there now but
nothing prevents it from being there. And when d-i support for macs is
added it doesn't have to be pushed in then.

Last I heard kernel 2.6 support for mac was being worked on and 2.4 is
getting skipped alltogether. I don't expect any newer udeb to replace
this any time soon.
