That depends on ones point of view.  Has anyone started a timer running 
to see how long it takes for the latest fix for the firefox/iceweasel 
exploit announced yesterday to actually get into the wheezy repo's?  I 
don't recommend anything less than a wind it once a year clock.

The security ralated stuff should be moved out asap by the distro's & I 
don't care whose logo is on your boot screen.  Not when someone is bored 
out of their skull for lack of anything more interesting to do.
