The latter will probably cause the most problems. The Debian packages of
the later kernels depend on an later version of libc6, with all the
further dependency implications.

You will probably be able to use the kernels you compile yourself.

For the rest, you could consider mixing stable and testing (through APT
pinning.) MySQL 5 is definitely in testing and vim 7 will make it there

Hope this helps,
