Am I the only one that favors using the actual names rather than the
aliases?  I used unstable for a while, then, with no warning,
unstable was bumbed from woody to a very broken sid, and that
machine got hosed.  It took me a long time to figure out what
happened.  Since the aliases can be bumped without warning to the
next release, I think people should use the proper names for the
releases in order to stay out of trouble.
