We disagree on the strength of its links. 8-)
I don't understand what's keeping apt 0.6 from being distributed with
sarge (modulo a new run of non-automated regression tests, of course).
The key management issue could be side-stepped by switching from a
year-based signing key to a release signing key. I suspect there's
some kind of non-technical obstacle most DDs don't know about
(wouldn't be the first).
