I was running a half-stable/half-testing distribution for a while, which
worked okay - aside from the fact that when I twiddled with it to add support
for some new software I wanted (KDE 2, X 4.1, etc.) it broke. Upgrading
to testing didn't help, since it wouldn't even install (apt-get -u
dist-upgrade gave me a horrible mass of errors in the packages).
