That's great! now, last doubt: what type of suites are allowed in the
nmu command? Andreas mentioned some (other than the default

* experimental
* $STABLE-backports
* $STABLE-proposed-updates

are there any other acceptable? is $STABLE 'stable' or 'wheezy' (the
former is preferred - from my POV - to avoid to update the suites list
at each release)? No binnmu in testing? so, really, what should I put
in this suites menu?! :)
