Why? I use a gnu/linux Gentoo system, and it indeed can recompile itself
almost without a hitch (I just did it a month ago when upgrading to GCC
4.x from GCC 3.x) and surely with no more than a reboot for
recompiling/restarting the kernel.

Sure Gentoo is designed for self-recompilation, but it's matter of
managing scripts.
What stops Debian from doing the same?
