Not sure why your apt-show-versions can't distinguish between unstable and 
testing. This is the excerpt of the output of apt-show-versions on my system. 
It clearly mentions "testing" after every package. I am only using the testing 
branch of repositories. If you are using unstable, then I think it would have 
mentioned it right after the package. 

For e.g. 
openoffice.org-writer/unstable uptodate 2..(whatever) ;-)

Remember fellas, what we do in life echoes in eternity!
