Eventually you miss out on major changes (defoma, perl5.6, that
xdm/gdm/kdm/etc stuff, other things) that if you don't put some thought
into it you end up pulling way too much back from unstable and might as
well be running unstable instead unless you backport the new versions
into the old-way of doing things.
