apt - preferences

Package: *
Pin: release a=stable
Pin-Priority: 700

Package: *
Pin: release a=testing
Pin-Priority: 400

Package: *
Pin: release a=unstable
Pin-Priority: 50
I was hoping to get:
always follow stable but allow specific calls for testing/unstable. (which would be like: 700/50/50)

But, if it's 'testing' keep following the version for testing allowing upgrades as provided. This is where I got stuck.

With the above, when I do:
apt-get upgrade
then everything upgrades stable->testing
which I don't want.
I do want to be able to upgrade manually (apt-get -target) to different archives, but can I keep those package following that archive without editing the preferences file?

So if I do 'apt-get --target testing mozilla', how can I keep following the testing/mozilla package?

Experience is what you get when you were expecting something else.
