On the topic of glibc upgrades, I wonder: how dangerous will it be for
systems (in various states of Debian/Unstable) to do an "apt-get install
glibc" to upgrade it, instead of the recommended "apt-get dist-upgrade"
(which updates everything on the system to the current Debian/Unstable
which may not be preferred in a number of situations)?

I hope this question belongs to the right list. If I should have asked
in -users instead, please accept my apologies.
