Since maemo is loosely based on Debian, what are the chances we'll ever 
see an incremental upgrade path akin to an 'apt-get upgrade' instead of 
being required to flash the device every time a minor release comes out? 
I can maybe understand going from 2007 to 2008 but a dot release 
shouldn't have to be such a hassle to move to, should it? It is tedious 
to have to reinstall all my other applications in the event that I might 
want to install something like Skype that requires the latest libraries. 
And if it's the new app's fault, why can't the libraries be upgraded 
instead as with any other standard Linux distro?
