Read through the threads from the last few weeks for discussions of why
sarge is *not* the version for end-uses who have a clue.

Summary: right now (ie, right before it's about to be released), testing
is pretty usable, but it's intended more as a developer sandbox than as
a useable system.  For that reason, expect the new testing version to
start breaking hard once sarge has been promoted to "stable" -- and
expect those breakages to take months to sort out.
