  If you have some "extra" modules loaded (like snd_* etc.. )  it
doesn't mean that after unloading/blacklisting theese modules your
kernel will be _much_ better/secure.
  As Craig said ,stock kernels are good for installation only - but
only assuming that you use your debian on server (not on on desktop -
imagine all those people with soundcards yelling "omg omg.. where's my
sound ?" ;/ )
 Moreover , assuming that you have your debian on server machine -
IMHO there's no other way to use it in production than compiling a
monolitic/your own kernel.
 Stock kernels are built for the most installation compatibility and
hardware support - we all have another hardware, and theese kernels
are for all of us.
