Thank you Remco - the gist of what you say corresponds to my 
recollection of the discussions I have seen. The problem is now, that I 
am confronted with reality: 9 months release interval, a new upstream 
release with lots of promising goodies around the corner - and 
competitivity with other distros who happen to have a more fortunate timing.

Lets not open another lengthy discussion on this. But I suggest to file 
these considerations somewhere, and assess the policy once there is more 
practical experience (between backports and flexibility some solution is 
needed rapidly)
