You can, even now, try putting testing in your sources.list and try to
move to testing. Testing is also a trifle better than instable because
the secutiry team now gives security updates for testing as
well. Added advantage: it gets all newer packages from unstable after
10 days of no critical bug reports in unstable.

In a sense, testing (now lenny) may be just the right balance you are
looking for, but YMMV.
