one thing to keep in mind is woody will ship with a specific kernel
(probably 2.2.19 or 2.2.20) and will not ever upgrade that kernel once
woody is stable.  so when the current kernel that supports some new
mac is 4.4.12 debian woody will still be using 2.2.19 which won't
support the new machine.  no new kernel will be available until the
next stable release after woody, in 2043.

so from that perpective a static text that goes with the static kernel
debian's stable boot-floppies release uses might be a good thing.
