Almost all criticism is justified: kernel 2.6.18 instead of 2.6.32,
ancient glibc (and many other packages that we can't update without
updating it first), old SSH... also, some packages are likely to be
dropped, and some other should be added.

Been there, seen the comments. Some are really hmm... unpleasant,
but even those are true: we have really much to do in -current,
once we've released a 3.1-stable and now aren't required to look
back.
