... unless, of course, you want to stay in the slightly-less-stable 
but continuously modernised "testing" environment rather than the 
sarge that you have come to know and love, in which case you should 
use "etch".  

In any case I would recommend that you use "sarge" or "etch" rather 
than "stable" or "testing".  In this way you won't have to ask the 
same question when etch becomes stable ;)  You'll have full control 
over your dist-upgrades and no unpleasant surprises.
