I run sid, with gnome from experimental.  A very useful command in this
situation (which I think will also get most of what you want) is 
'l', which allows you to limit the tree view. for example, l ~Aexper 
will limit the interactive screen view to packages from experimental.
~Atesting, ~Aunstable will limit the view to those 'releases',
