My experience in the past has been that packages installed in this manner _usually_ work. It's a lot less risky running a few Unstable packages on Testing than it is, say, to run Testing or Unstable packages on Stable. You're usually only dealing with a few minor revs. Though you *are* taking things into your own hands doing this. I revved Galeon a ways back like this and had to resolve a number of dependencies manually but got a functioning system and a far improved version of Galeon at the time. Peace. -- Karsten M.
