Which is not a particularly hard thing to do every two years. The whole
point of running Debian on a server, or at least much of the point, is
that the world does not end when you have to upgrade; on the contrary,
it's mostly easy, and in places were it's not easy, it's manageable.

Frankly, if upgrading a DNS server running Debian every couple of years
presents a grave problem, maybe you need to rethink your definition of

     2. That which causes joy or happiness.
