This policy is quite understandable, but as an aside: Anybody know if 
the developers have started preparing a point release? 

With both the number of packages in proposed-updates and the size and 
popularity of some of them, notably X and Apache, it would have been 
nice to have a point release, both for the mirror problem and for 
installation from CDs onto low-bandwidth systems.
