Sorry, with X i thought of "package X" instead of xserver-*. I meant for the
kernel, which in some cases it could be tagged non automatic for updates, so
that only the package is installed if the users wishes so. Making 2.6 kernels
available for woody could have been an scenario where this approach could have
work, except for the dependencies that the new kernel requires, but still is a
good example of a possibility.
