I am using sid.  As sarge is already released, texlive can only
make it into etch, and the way to etch is via sid :-)

Making texlive support sarge will be difficult, as a lot of
additional packages explicitly depend on tetex.  For sid, we
can fix this, but not for sarge.  If you really want to support
sarge, maybe use backports.org, but supporting sid will be hard
enough :-(

No, for texlive you need a huge HD anyway.
