Good questions, (for which I have no answers)
Back in 2008 I thought volatile was going away
(http://lists.debian.org/debian-mirrors/2008/01/msg00002.html), but I
did a fresh Squeeze install yesterday and noticed it installed
volatile sources. O_o. It's widely known that Debian moves slowly...
but 4 years seems to be pushing the envelope. :-)
