For Whonix it's really "Wheezy". Stable is too old (Tor version), too
few hardening features... Wheezy is not out yet. Whonix shouldn't be
based on testing. But since Wheezy goes stable or is almost stable, for
Whonix the decision for now is really "Wheezy" and not "testing". When
Wheezy becomes stable, I can switch it to stable...

Is that a satisfactory answer?
