Umh... I know this will sound quite boring to you - But I (and I
guess, many of the Debian people) do not like the idea of presenting
testing/unstable snapshots as something ready for the end-user to
install. Hey, if they want unstable software, why not try

I understand you have your own motivations, and I know our testing is
more workable and more stable than many official distributions... But
anyway, Debian releases _are_ stable, and presenting Debiwhatever as a
testing snapshot won't do much good to Debian's reputation - known for
being anal about stability.
