And testing doesn't get security patches, so if you have a server
running Debian testing and you have awstats and a nasty bug in awstats
allows a worm to gain access to your server, the patch might take 10
days to arrive while on Debian Stable I think it should be less than
12hs and on Sid untill a new upstream release is done, which might be a
short period, but testing, untill Sid's package passes to testing it'll
be unsecure.
