If you know your way around to fix it, yes. Otherwise, definitely no .-)

You can always do what I do: run basically stable, upgrdaed as required
to unstable packages. The firt you install pulls libc and some other
stuff, from then on it's mostly the package you upgrade plus its
dependencies that gets pulled from unstable.

Has worked quite well for me on my 4 Debian boxes. Keep an eye on
security updates, though, as they are not always available right away
for unstable. The Debian Security Team in general doesn't cover
