With enough coffee I can do anything :-)
BTW, the reason why apahce was giving me bullets was that when ssh
failed, the new version of apache2 had been installed, but not
configured. After forcing the issues on ssh, I did apt-get dist-upgrade
again, and it just continued where it stopped before. After that all I
needed to do was merge some configs, restart a few services (it's a UML
box, so I didn't even have to reboot it), and all is well again.

Actually the client were pressuring me for php5 and mysql5, and I prefer
using testing (at least when it's closer to becoming the new stable) to
backports. Besides, I've setup several servers with Etch lately and
they're as stable as my woody and sarge servers - just more up to date.
