True, but lenny+1/2 breaks with stable update rules (it contains new
packages); the question is whether users care. :)

Now that you make me think of it, I don't think they do, at all,
especially not if lenny+1/2 only provides options beyond the
standard stable-updates upgrades, no mandatory upgrades that go
against those stable update rules.
