Well, the release of 3.0r1 won't matter, but I typically use
dist-upgrade so I can catch any new dependencies.  I also use -u to
list what will be upgraded so I can decide to abort if I wish,

When the big libc6 upgrade comes to testing, I will probably hold off
for a while (I've been caught before, with unstable).
