We have never claimed that sid is ready to be used by end-users. sid
is a development platform and might be dangerous. We expect people
running sid to be able to fix major issues that might be present
themselves, there is no support. There are times (usually shortly
after a release) where even I don't dare updating my sid systems.

I mainly still see grml as a live CD that is a _very_ good tool during
system analysis, debugging, recovery and installation. I doubt,
however, that such systems are a good solution to install on a hard
disk and actually use.
