This does not work if the unstable package depends on an unstable
version of a dependency shared with the stable system, e.g. if kate
depends on an experimental Qt version, your current choice is to not
test it or have all of KDE use an unstable version of Qt.
and in that case you think you da anybody a favor looking at the big
picture by having 2,3,4,5 different versions of libraries statically
linked and nobody cares about security updates of the bundles?
in a perfect world they would get updates because the bundeled libraries
in the real life *nobody* will care as long the app runs
