"sid" is subject to massive changes and in-place library updates. This
can result in a very "unstable" system... Use it at your own risk!
SID is a developers release. It exists so devs can find and fix bugs
before code goes into TESTING. It is NOT meant for daily use, and not
expected to be usable in a production environment.
It is expected that anyone running SID is able to fix pretty much
anything that breaks, submitting patches back to UNSTABLE.
David, you've been around the block a few times, and you're not a
developer. You should know better than to run SID and ask here for help
when the system blows up.
If TESTING/Backports doesn't get you close enough to the bleeding edge,
then perhaps you should choose another distro.
