Theorically, it will be supported for 5 months. 3.6 will only be
supported for 6 more months, so it doesn't make that much a difference
for squeeze support. And we have to support Iceape and Icedove, which
have the same codebase as 3.5, for that time, too.

Debian will support it as long as backporting patches will be possible.
It will however be easier to backport to one target only (1.9.1) than to
backport to two targets (1.9.1 and 1.9.2, for all Ice* packages)
