Here is an idea:

slink and sid will never change, their proper names are just that, slink and
sid.  Once woody is released someone installing potato will also want that name to not change, it will just stay 'potato'.

If someone is installing 'stable' let us assume that they always want to be
stable, so when stable changes, they want to change as well.  Likewise
installing 'testing' people want it to get updated when testing updates.

This patch makes more sense if you know that there is a define WOODY_RELEASED
that handles changing the meanings of the codenames, something like this:


#define CODENAME_STABLE         "woody"
#define CODENAME_TESTING        "foo"


#define CODENAME_STABLE         "potato"
#define CODENAME_TESTING        "woody"
