A good idea, that doesn't work all that well in practice.
Packages rarely stand alone... they depend on other packages, particularly
shared libraries. It is hard to pull packages from unstable without finding
yourself pulling in a number of shared library updates, at which point the
rest of your system isn't really "stable" any more.
