Actually, most of the time the dependency structure between Debian unstable and testing is such that the packages from unstable can be installed "straight through" into testing. Look at the apt-get HOWTO for the details on pinning which allows you to selectively pull in some package via the comfort of apt-get.

Debian packages of R 2.1.0 do work on testing; my machines fetched the uploaded packages directly from my local build repository. Since then, however, unstable got a new libc and four Debian package of CRAN packages (Design, Hmisc, tseries and a Debian update to VR) to not yet fit onto testing for that reason.

Hope this helps, Dirk
