The problem with supporting old kernels is not just the need to maintain
a few packages like initrd-tools or modutils, but that every important
package cannot rely on features of modern kernels: inotify, sysfs, etc.
This means that Debian as a whole will either lack support for features
relying on these kernel features or will become more and more complex
due to compatibility code.
Please consider carefully the effects of advocating support for old
