Funny, I thought one of the big advantages of Debian over most other
distros is that you *don't* need to reinstall when a new version comes
out.  What's the deal with etch, then?  Debian's not jumping on the
'reinstall for every upgrade' bandwagon, is it?

(And I ask this from a system which has been through slink, potato,
woody, and is currently on sarge, all without needing a reinstall.)
