I'm sorry, I have to disagree with you on this one. Several people on
this list have complained about broken dependencies and uninstallable
packages when upgrading from stable to unstable. Upgrading to testing
and then to unstable solved their problems. I was one of them and IIRC,
I've responded to at least two others on this list with the same
problems. When I bought my new laptop only a few weeks ago I had to deal
with the same issues. Going through testing solved them all.
