 The kernel team is discussing the possibility of increase the default
value of mmap_min_addr in lenny (it has already been done for
sid). Obviously this has implications for the wine and dosemu packages
(are there others?)

 The current proposal is to notify users in the next kernel DSA that
we will be making this change in the next point release and point
users to a wiki page that explains the problem and describes how to
bump the setting in the meantime.

 I saw some discussion in #505247 about maybe adding a debconf
question/stub file in /etc/sysctl.d to drop this value on a
per-package basis. Do wine/dosemu have plans to do this? I wonder if
we should consider including something like that in stable?
