I think I already said it public more than one time, lets repeat it:
I am sure that sections *will* go away. Yet, right after Lenny we will
gain half a dozen new ones, as getting rid of them is no short term
I think the very first release without sections *COULD* be lenny+2, but
only if people start working on that goal *soon* after lenny got out.
There are many major changes that need to be done before we finally can
bury them.

 - All the usual tools need to fully support them.
 - Sane inclusion into the archive (that alone, with all the
   implications it has for the maintenance of tags, will be a huge step
 - One release where we support both, but favor the new system.
