OK. I suppose it's impossible, but I believe many users (myself
included) would have been very happy to keep using unstable, or even
better testing even though it's not meant to ever become a stable
release: that would help avoiding the dreaded unstable breakages which
happen from time to time.
I'm not really aware how much effort this would have required, but it
would have been nice, to keep existing installations running a while
longer with up-to-date software...
