Yeah - you got the idea.
Install "testing" now. Once you've "slurped" all the bits and pieces you
want you should be able to update the sources.list to point to "sarge"
instead of "testing", or just keep using "testing" if you want more
Trying to install "sarge" now _will_not_ work, as it doesn't exist.
Of course if you are feeling adventurous you could point your sources at
"unstable", which is even more fun :)
You'd get the latest versions of everything within a couple of days of them
