"In the movie" was used in many parts of the document so I've adjusted
it somewhat (but not dropped it) and add a reference to a specific Toy

we've used so far that does not come from the first movie is Wheezy.

I've also fixed this (in SVN) in the answer to the FAQ about the
codenames: http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/debian-faq/ch-ftparchives.en.html#s-codenames

Debconf is mentioned in other parts of the document. I'm not dropping this.
