but why would you do that?  Sarge has been a perfectly good system for two
years (iirc - it's too long ago for me to really remember when I upgraded) -
and keeping pretty current, too.  So people who want extremely stable
servers are still using Woody, but most end-users who have a clue have
Sarge.  It would be nice to see it go stable, but I can't see that I'm
getting very far behind the bleeding edge with Sarge (eg, KDE 3.2.2 came
into sarge last week - just a couple of months after it was released)
