No, we need to do a good job of *ensuring the system is safely rebootable
at all times*.  Why should we be satisfied with upgrades that have to come
with a big warning label, "system may not boot back up completely if you
leave your desk for coffee and the power goes out"?  I think we have every
right to expect more from Debian (and ourselves) than that.

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
