Well, it's "codename", not "suite".

I was thinking about that when setting up the repository, but I'd
prefer not to have to "release" something at our side when Debian
releases, i.e. update the symlinks when the next stable release comes
out. I couldn't do that at the very time as Debian anyway, so there
would always be a time window where "stable" would be the wrong stable
for some people.

I'd also claim it is better style to use codenames in the sources.list
anyway, because then you decide when it's time to dist-upgrade.
(That's also Ubuntu's policy, and I think the debian-installer has
been doing that for quite some time, too.)

We'll include a FAQ entry for this.
