Hmm, have been doing just straight upgrades for many years now and
haven't encountered an unstable system state. So far, if a straight
upgrade has hit a situation where an upgraded package requires some new
library with a different name, it lets me know and I can deal with it.
I've done dist-upgrades in the past, and successfully had them hose
installed systems, so I prefer periodic upgrades, generally sticking to
only upgrading specific apps I use.
But I run Aptosid, with turns Debian Sid into a very stable system.
Aptosid does a good job of vetting package updates. I know a while ago
they were blocking all Gnome updates because various core Gnome packages
were in transition.
Of course, the most important part of any upgrade is to make a good
backup of the system partition before the upgrade!
