No, but Sarge is pretty stable, relatively speaking. The new installer
isn't yet that stable IMO. Last time I saw it in action, it didn't work,
and we ended up going back to the woody installer, and just
dist-upgrading to Sarge. The new installer is still in the category of
"might work for you" as far as I'm concerned.
