Because the font system gets a bit wacky periodically and to get a
stable environment that isn't aged.  When I made the switch to Debian
about a year ago, woody was just too old.  Now that sarge has gone
stable, I'll probably use it for a year or so and then look at upgrading
to etch.  We'll see how it all pans out though.
