We see issues with the stable-security buildd (peri); it's often not
available when we need it. IIRC, those are caused by kernel stability
issues, but my memory is a bit foggy.
For lenny, there are a couple of Berkeley DB issues that could need some
attention. I'd also prefer if all architectures could provide the full
threading API, with cross-process mutexes and stuff like that (which
presumably would enable us to use that to fix the Berkeley DB bugs).
