It seems like there are enough posts about this to warrant an entry on
the http://www.debian.org/releases/ page.  Something like "drawing from
multiple releases can cause serious trouble for your system and is not

deal of experience with apt and dpkg and have a strong grasp of how the
debian package system works."
