Sensible. I take it that new versions of the same software will
propagate in like manner.
One possible conundrum to be solved. Let's say I run devel for a
day and have it update my current setup. Let's then say that I find
that critical spells (for me) in devel are broken. If I then pull off
the stable grimoire and run update, will it replace the things in devel
with the versions in stable?
