I certainly like the idea of updating the main distribution w/ porter
fixes at some point; whether it's before the release (which could put a
strain on RMs, introduce potentially destabilizing changes during a
freeze, etc), or after a release (debian 3.2 is released, followed by
3.2r1, which includes security fixes as well as a bunch of changes needed
by porters for various architectures; well tested fixes, as well, for
people using stable w/ stable-proposed-updates in their sources.list doing
the testing).
