This was very helpful. 	 did set my sources.list to sarge and then did
apt-get update; apt-get dist-upgrade
No complaints about looped depends. It did make an incredible number
of changes. Took about as long as the original full install. But at this point
everything seems to still be running. I might go to testing again but I
think I'll leave that decision for a while.
