I must invent here again:
If there are issues with the vc->tty transition/printf on netcfg when
the new packages move from testing to core then we shouldn't move them
so fast.
We currently don't have netcfg (which seems a popular package for
wireless stuff) on the ISO (Q: Should we have it?, IMHO iwconfig and
wpa_supplicant is enough for wireless installations).
But if new core packages break something which could not fix in netcfg
then we should delay the move testing->core until problems fixed.

Again: We don't need initscripts/filesystem/udev/... from testing for
the ISO, we could release fine with packages currently in core - only
the hwclock patch is needed for us. And that we have...

So: Don't panic!
