How about using this opportunity to help fulfill the Shuttleworth
dream of freezing both Ubuntu LTS and Debian at the same time? He self
mentioned he's willing to reach a 'compromise' if Debian or another
major distro is willing to co-operate, that is if it's willing to
freeze the same upstream versions of key components (Linux, X, GNU
