It must be kept in mind that the only reason there should be for
running sid should be helping Debian developers and not day to day
usage. If wanting to have updated software it looks far more suitable
pinning to stable or testing tracking a limited number of packages
from unstable.

Another chance, the best from a stability point of view, is sticking
to stable and backporting packages when a newer version is
needed. I've running woody for years with some backports from sarge
for important software I wanted to have updated and few things ever

The best about Debian is that you can have exactly the flavour you
want. :)
