Just to chime in, we use stable only, with quite a few backports. [1] Often
enough there's a package I'd really like - right now it's a fresh postfix -
but I find greater stability and less trouble sticking with known good
software for as long as possible.

For environments in which change management is a big task, it is *far* saner
to stick with stable.
