Ah, OK.  I haven't used jigdo, yet -- but at least I'm not guilty of
downloading full-sized Debian ISOs, generally.  I tend to use whatever
minimally suffices to get Debian going, and then apt-get from the Net.

So, in my experience, it's time to say goodbye to potato / 2.2, except
in cases of exceptional need for ultimate stability.  Large server farms
going to woody / 3.0 with no problems is the clincher, suggesting that 
my favourable experience hasn't been a fluke.
