It's more or less the same ... in both cases, the packages are not
autobuilt. The only difference is that packages in experimental won't
get installed once you added the good entry in sources.lists while
packages in a staging area would. For experimental, you must install
them explicitely with apt. For the staging area, a dist-upgrade would
install them (if you have a higher version number of course).

I guess you can just grab the scripts on bod home directory
(auric:~bod/) to use them ... it would be cool if someone made a package
with those scripts.
