a thought would be to change how repositories are
tagged, so that we would have a STABLE, UNSTABLE,
TESTING, and LTS in addition to the GIBBON, HARDY, etc
of releases, that way those who want LTS install once
and setting repositories to LTS don't have to worry
(other than other update woes), those running STABLE
will be running STABLE regardless of which release it
is (gibbon now, hardy later).

anyway my $0.02
