Will that happen during the woody freeze? Because actually, I was lying
a bit: I'm running testing with stable and sid as alternatives to get
stuff from.

Anyway, I'm fairly confident that apt will help me handle even sid
diverging from testing. My system may then be closer to sid than to
testing, but I don't think that's too bad. :)
