So use stable + backports for now, and once testing has settled down a
bit, and you've accumulated enough backports to make that a pain, switch
to testing.  That cycle of usage is part of what ensures that the next
release gets enough testing.

Your pipe-dream of an effortless, stable, and up to date system is just
that -- pick any two.

Cheers, Phil.
