Using Debian Sarge (stable) with “testing” and “unstable” is not always the best idea, as in order to get a package not present in Sarge you might need to make a massive update of libs, thus having a mixed system, not quite Sarge anymore.

However, you can use at times some packages from the “testing” and “unstable” — just don't forget to check first the backports repositories!
