That's probably because you can afford it due to lack of problematic
hardware on your hands.
For those who are not as lucky as you and me it might be more difficult.
At least we already have one person who might need solution right now.

I just get that new NIC with my new mainboard, a Gigabyte
GA-990XA-UD3-AM3. Since I just have got this hardware since 1-2 weeks, I
didn't searched for other solutions, but r8168 works.
btw: Linux 3.0 and 3.1 didn't worked.

Anyone who has problems with r8169 in 3.0 or 3.1 should report this:

To: Realtek linux nic maintainers<nic_swsd@realtek.com>
To: Francois Romieu<romieu@fr.zoreil.com>
Cc: netdev@vger.kernel.org

They may also wish to open a Debian bug report and cc that.

That is right, also that it should be fixed upstream, which isn't the case since years (according to google results). So I don't see a problem to include the r8168-dkms package, until r8169 realy works.
