I know.  I have a Squeeze box running Trinity, but not my desktop.  Trinity is 
not yet *completely* production ready, if, like me, you cannot code yourself 
out of trouble.

It's already great for many purposes, and I was glad to see the change of 
policy from "bring a new version out every six months, willy nilly" so that 
problems never really had time to be solved and everything was released at 
the beta or even alpha stage (à la Ubuntu (is Ubuntu feminine?) - Timothy 
Pearson is a Ubuntu user) to "not released until it is ready".

It is a marvellous project and I follow its progress eagerly.  I am really 
grateful for the time and trouble of those in it who are able to code.  I 
would already use it for some of the people whom I support, whose usage is 
different from mine.  But there are one or two GUI apps that I sometimes use 
as root, and most can not be used as root in Trinity.

If necessary, I shall just have to live without them if that is still the 
situation when support for Lenny is withdrawn.  But I have a few months yet, 
and I was intending to raise this issue on the Trinity users list in the near
