/me wipes the egg off his face...

Hrm...looks like I am mistaken.  I was under the impression that
dist-upgrade would upgrade to the next tree, ie. if you have stable, it
would upgrade to the testing tree.  After reading the man page, I can
see I am wrong.  dist-upgrade *will* do that, but only after changing
your sources.list to reference the testing packages.

So, my apologies, Fraser, and thanks for correcting me, Haim.
