Mission critical, I think not.  A mission critical server probably
wouldn't run _any_ canned distro; instead, I'd have versions "pinned"
to "what works" (if only that were an option! ;-)

But consider this: I update my mailserver about as often as my
workstation, with about 700 packages installed on the first and 2100
on the latter, both are `sid'.  But right now I'm looking at 22
upgrades on the mail server, and a whopping 197 on the workstation.
Ie, the critical core is a _lot_ more stable than the frothy apps.
