yes, it works the same way when you are mixing etch und sid. As long as the
version of a package refers to sid it will be updated from sid even when you
set Default-Release to testing. But when the package migrates to etch before
there is an update of it in sid, it will not be updated anymore to sid
Quite handy that is ;-).
