Perhaps I could just leave it at "woody" for now, to ensure I keep all
the nifty stuff I've installed (KDE2, XF86 4, etc.), and then after
'things happen', switch it to 'stable.'

In other words, I'm wanting to be on the almost-bleeding-edge
(hence running testing/woody right now), but I don't currently want to
do that with what comes along in the future... I want to stick to stable,
now that all the things I wanted are about to be marked as such.

I hope I'm making sense (a little distracted as I write this)
