If you were dead, I'd like to be the first to write a funeral oration
extolling your contribution to the world and free software - but I'd
prefer to postpone this task for the next forty or fifty years if that's
OK with you :)

I think some of the Debian folk _are_ getting on with it - but I second
your view that we actually need to release the next version of the
Debian distribution in short order. As noted in a comment on LWN,
however, it may be that the current flamewars are just that - in the
longer term, we won't necessarily remember them, but in the short
term they constitute a major diversion.
Now let's just release Sarge, with or without a rider on
the fact that the Social Contract has changed wording midstream.
All the best,
