I've been slowly upgrading my packages from slink to potato, and
frankly, have never had a single problem.  I was nervous about upgrading
perl, because I've seen all sorts of veiled references to possible
hosage (although I've never seen a concise statement of the actual
problem), but eventually I just did it, and removed the old perl.
Result?  No problems, everything seems to work perfectly.  Perhaps there
are a few packages that crash and burn, but I apparently don't use any
of them.
