I've tracked unstable on whatever's happened to be my main box for
about the last six years, and indeed, its not as exciting as it
sounds...but when there *is* a trainwreck, watch out!

I remember some dpkg bugs right after Ian Jackson released the first C
version that were quite impressive---mostly inadequate checking for
broken packages that replaced /bin with a 0-byte file or some such.

On my servers I have taken to running 'testing' with the occasional
specific bits taken from 'unstable'---the fact that apt can handle
having both dists in its list and you can selectively say, 'always
pull this from unstable' is great.
