I do it m'self, but I *prefer* to use the package system when I can.
It's just a constant frustration for me that to use the (most
excellent) apt/dpkg system, I have to stay two years out of date.

Which is kind of my point. If I were made dictator of the Debian
project (not bloody likely) I would declare all distributions to age
out at six months: at that point, unstable becomes testing, testing
becomes frozen, frozen becomes stable, period. And six months would
be a MAXIMUM, not the standard cycle. One year of built-in
obsolescence is still a lot.
