	Libraries. If you build against a library version that is no
 longer in unstable, then you may have issues in testing when a new
 library tries to migrate into testing -- cause nowhere would there be
 packages built against the new library version.

	Not to mention that unstable would become unviable as a
 distribution -- the run time libs may not be the ones that are needed
 by the packages in unstable.

	Could you elaborate on that? Why is it so painful?

Keep cool, but don't freeze. Hellman's Mayonnaise
