One is to always backup your apt cache for the event something breaks and you have to roll back to the previous version. Once a package rolls down from sid the old version is gone from the repos. The other is to learn what chroot is and how to use it. By doing chroot into a broken system you can almost always roll back and repair a system which has been broken by an update. These kind of breakages are rare but they can happen. If you are prepared you need not panic.
