I like the solution, i just wonder about different releases with
different issues  - do we have a different section of the same page
('jump to' links at the top to get to them) or different pages for each?
i might think about this.

Nows when it needs to be taken into consideration.

It needs to be taken into consideration upstream first. Shortcuts
taken due to you not having to support jumps in releases could be
quite tricky to undo. Workarounds on a system-by-stsytem basis should
be possible, but you'll need to know your way around, apt and
dpkg. The easiest way would probably end up being to do a Edgy
