From a security viewpoint b) is the only option, and we have always said
What if there were more debian distributions each of which contained a
smaller subset of the master debian distribution. For example
debian-server-386 debian-thinclient debian-Xclient and whatnot. There would
be one master unstable and testing but numerous stable distros.
The idea being that sometimes the stable distros get help up because some
obscure package still has release critical bugs in it. maybe it only
effects one platform but not another. Maybe by breaking the distros up into
smaller chunks there would be more recent versions of stable and people
would not feel the need to run testing. The situation right now is that for
production you run an ancient system or cross your fingers, hold your
breath and run unstable.
