There are numerous warning you will run across that if you use sid, you
should be either subscribing to the appropriate lists so that you know
what is broken today, or else you are simply hacker enough to deal with
it yourself. sid has no training wheels and no guarantees. Caveat Emptor.
It works well most of the time, but it can be near dysfunctional for 
weeks. There is nothing at all wrong with using sid; there is also little
or no sympathy if you do so without recognizing what you are getting into.

Nothing wrong with that. But things can still break badly, so be prepared
to dive in and sort them manually.
