Well, Linus' extensions won't break because GNOME updates them with
every release and ships them with the official GNOME release.
They are also available in Debian:
In order to use a "classic" GNOME, the only thing the user has to do
on a Debian installation is (if the extensions package is installed)
to select "GNOME Classic" from the login screen.
So it's not complicated at all.
