It looks like this works now!

I am still testing the upgrade path, but I had a first successful
report already. I will send another message on this list when it is
truly safe to do so, and of course, a newer revision of the
distribution will then be released as well.

Here is how to proceed. Make sure your /etc/apt/sources.list file
contains this (and only this):

deb http://ftp2.de.debian.org/debian unstable main
deb http://pkg-fso.alioth.debian.org/debian unstable main
deb http://download.hackable1.org/debian sid main
=== END PASTE ===

Then run as root:
# apt-get update && apt-get install hackable1

You should then be safe to "apt-get upgrade" whenever you wish. The best
thing is that you will then be able to obtain fixes automatically
without re-installing or re-flashing anything.

By the way, if you see this question:
Configuration file `/etc/init.d/fso-frameworkd'
 ==> Deleted (by you or by a script) since installation.
 ==> Package distributor has shipped an updated version.
   What would you like to do about it ?  Your options are:
=== END PASTE ===
then it is safe to say "I" (yes).

So, in short: this is not fully tested yet, but you are all welcome to
give it a try. Let us know how it goes!
