Consider all the users who are running stable, plus a backport of some
servers, or a chromium or firefox installed from upstream because
stable's is too old. Consider the users who have so many backports
installed that they start to encounter integration problems between
them. Consider users who install Ubuntu because there is no usable
Debian release with a kernel new enough for their hardware, but then
have to fight with it to disable some "Unity" thing. These are all
use cases for CUT.
