However, you have continuous access to the debian development tree
(unstable) and a slightly stabilised version of it (testing) so there is
no need to wait for a whole release.

Even if you do wait a whole release, Debian doesn't require a full
reinstall. Ever. (I have some boxes that have been upgraded from 1.1 -
in 1996.) Can't believe how many people are used to reinstalling RH
just like Windows. It shouldn't be like that.
