I don't follow why you say that's a +1 for squeeze to take 3.5, when squeeze
will have a life cycle comparable to lucid's.  I *hope* Debian is going to
release squeeze much sooner than October 2010 (!), so although we might
believe 3.5 is release-ready by October, that doesn't necessarily mean it's
release-ready in time for squeeze?
