There was a working installer in Woody (clunky, but working.)  Given a known
release schedule, it wouldn't have been repaced in Sarge until a new,
working installer was actually ready.

Note that I said "frozen" every six months.  Obviously if the frozen version
was still unreleasable work would continue until it was ready -- just no
changes not related to stability or security.
