Worst case you have to add testing to sources.list and get the kernel
from there. With the right pining or default release that still leaves
you nearly completly stable.

I also think we can trust backports.org to continue its great service
of backporting. Lay out some groundrules that need to be met to
support testing->sarge installs and I'm sure something can be worked
out from there.
