To upgrade from sarge to current testing? I'd do it if its not a
production system and you can handle any possible breakage.

If your sources.list is set to sarge, then when etch is released,
nothing will be upgrade to etch.
If your sources.list is set to stable, then when etch is released,
you will upgrade to the current stable -- etch. But wiil upgrde again
when the next stable is relased.
If your sources.list is set to etch, then when etch is released,
you will upgrade to etch and stay with etch.

If you wait for etch to be relaesed, there will be an 'sarge to etch'
upgrade guide (release notes) that will help you address what every
issue have been found.
