Some of us using unstable use it because we have to. That is, we have to
if we want to run Debian. For example, I installed unstable for XF86
4.2. w/o it, I had to do a mickey mouse work-around to get my xserver to
start, which to me is way worse. 

I think your point of view on people running unstable only if they can
fix these 'basic' problems that arise is foolhearty. The more people
using unstable, the more bugs that are found, reported, and eventually
fixed for future stable releases. 

Just my pair of lincolns.
