This is not going to happen, I am not sure why people still seem to
think this actually possible. As I understand it the stable RM has
already ruled against this anyway, not that it would be pratical in any
case. Sarge aka Debian 3.1 will not change in any noticable way between
3.1r0 3.1r1 etc... The rX is for security updates.

People are currently hoping that Sarge+1 will release within a year of
Sarge release. It remains to be seen if Debian can release that fast. It
has in the past but it had much fewer packages.
