Testing in almost all cases is worse than unstable. Two major reasons,
it doesn't get security updates at all, and two you don't even know what
bugs are in it since they get closed when the bug is fixed in unstable.
The fact that things rarely migrate from unstable into testing due to
the fact that forward and reverse dependencies must be met only
compounds the problem.
