Wise plan. In fact setting up a Sarge machine as a victim for upgrade
testing to Etch is a good idea.
For servers the upgrade for me has gone quite easily. For desktops
the biggest problem has been the name changes for many web browser
plugins and also the movement of GNU FDL licensed documentation into
non-free. This means I have had to add non-free to my sources where
this was not previously needed and also needed to specifically install
many of the now non-free documentation packages that were split out.

You are an optimist thinking 8-9 months! I think you have plenty of
time well past that. Perhaps I should have said before security
upgrades for Sarge are discontinued. That will almost certainly
happen before Lenny releases. :-)
