Could you be more precise?
What is renamed, what is forked, what is cloned?

What properties will hold true after the fork?

I presume that "stable" simply becomes symlinked to "sarge" instead of 
"woody."  Is a copy of the "sarge" archive created to become the new 
testing, which happens initially to point to the exact same places in 
/pool that stable does?  And then they slowly diverge?
