BTW, apt has a cool feature that I found out about last week. If you want
to run the stable or testing dist, but have some packages from unstable
installed, then read apt_preferences(5) to find out how this works, then put
APT::Default-Release "testing"; in apt.conf, and list some unstable debian
archives in your sources.list. Then apt-get works normally, but you can
install packages from unstable by doing:
apt-get install packagename/unstable
apt-get install octave-matcompat/unstable
for example. (If you do something that requires upgrading already installed
packages from testing to unstable, you need to use -t unstable to do this.)
