Well, if it really is a production machine (people yell if it goes down,
etc.) shouldn't it be tracking stable instead of unstable anyways? I don't
think that kind of change (libc5 -> libc6) can't be made without some
amount of instability and experimenting.... well, unless we get only
perfect developpers who recompile all their packages for libc6 at the same
time. :)
