Norbert, I totally agree with what you wrote. 

However - I also remember you writing that you were considering to
update TeXLive 2009 in unstable "at some point".  

Do you still think this is feasible?  How would you suggest to choose
the right moment?  

And might it be possible to somehow label this point for plain TeXLive
users?  If our Debian testers reveal an incompatibility that is solved
by updating a particular package, this could also be done in this
"labelled point".
