Yeah, isn't it great? Also, if you're using Potato, you can put 
security.debian.org in your /etc/apt/sources.list, comment out everything
else, then run apt-get update && apt-get upgrade. 

That will install all security updates (and /only/ security updates) 
automagically. This is the easiest way I have ever seen to stay abreast of
security issues.
