As mentioned Debian still doesn't include 2.6 even in unstable, so 
AFAICS it probably won't get into squeeze. Debian is going to continue 
with the (more or less) regular 2 year release cycle after squeeze, so 
we're going to be stuck with 2.5 for quite a while. I don't particularly 
like that, but can't do anything about it.

Is there anything in 2.6 that's
a) very useful for Sugar but
b) doesn't have an easy enough fallback?
