woody also does not get security updates, in fact it can take a very
long time for security related updates to get into woody since its
almost entirely managed by a script.  unstable simply gets new
versions of a package installed immediatly so any security fixes are
in unstable as soon as they are packaged.  that does NOT guarentee they
will make it into woody any time soon though. 

the `testing' distribution (now woody) is the least secure branch you
can run.
